Beneath Mudd: The Libra Complex

December 2, 2016, by Izzy Jones

Hey guys! The very first blog I ever read from admissions was a tour of some of the lectures halls and some of the newer, nicer spaces here at Mudd. So I decided I’d do something similar, but for an older, and to the casual viewer, more hidden part of the college; The Libra Complex! […]

The Writing Center

December 2, 2016, by Ramita Kondepudi

In August 2014, I entered the world of the Writing Center for the first time as a freshman. Assigned to make an appointment with a consultant for my first Writ 1 paper, I was unsure of what to expect. I felt uncomfortable at the thought of being required to share my writing with someone I […]

A Walking Tour of the 5Cs

November 27, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

Harvey Mudd is part of a consortium of schools in California known as the Claremont Colleges. The colleges share resources with the each other, like the books available at the Honnold Mudd Library or the Student Health Center, and are physically close together.

CAP Events

November 12, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

It can be hard to get off campus as a first year Mudd student. You aren’t allowed to have a car on campus until your sophomore year, and since many of your friends are frosh, they don’t have adequate transportation either. Mudd students can easily get to a train station or a rental car, but […]

Muddhacks 2k16

November 10, 2016, by Charlee Van Eijk

Various parts and electronic components lay strewn across the desks. Arduinos, Raspberry Pis, and more were stuck to various contraptions, churning away. Redbull infused students buzzed around these contraptions, working feverishly through the night. Is this an all-nighter for an engineering class? A party in at an Adafruit warehouse?

Ways To Grow

November 7, 2016, by Izzy Jones

Hey guys. I’ve been thinking a lot recently about what I want to do with my life, and ho I want to make that happen. I worry, probably a bit too often, all things considered, about falling behind my peers, because I see a lot of people around me with a certain… Drive to get […]
