A tour of my off-campus adventures

March 30, 2016, by Ramita Kondepudi

Four days a week, I venture off Mudd campus for at least 1.5 hours.

Taking a Break from the Academic Heat in Death Valley

March 26, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

For many high schoolers, Spring Break is a good time to, well, take a break from high school and go explore collegiate options. College students can tell when these spring breaks begin as the campus tours become more frequent and crowded.

March 18, 2016, by Thyra

Today is the day. At 6:30 pm PDT, we will be releasing our decisions.

Hey guys! Short post today (not really), but I think it’s an important one. So a few times in my blogs, I’ve talked about dorms.

During my first year and a half at Harvey Mudd, I often questioned the need to take all of the required core classes. I knew that part of the Harvey Mudd mission statement was for students to be “well versed” in multiple scholastic areas, like physics, chemistry, and writing, but I did not see the connection […]

Tip of the Month: So You’re Starting Your College Search…

March 1, 2016, by Maureen

The truth is that I when I started this process myself, I went about it in all the wrong ways. I focused only on looking at colleges that I had heard of, the ones with the big reputations. While it all worked out in the end (HMC Class of 2010!), I wasted my family’s resources […]

Keeping a Creative Balance

February 28, 2016, by Izzy Jones

Hi again guys! Today I’m gonna talk a little bit about art at Mudd, and what some of the students here at the school do to express themselves.
