Six weeks into the Common Core and freshman year, I have learned how to describe crystal structures, write epsilon-delta proofs, and, in general, to arrive at correct answers.

Game Design at Scripps

October 7, 2017

Hey guys! Although in general we try to blog about the general Mudd experience, you know, classes lots of Mudders take, big open events, things like that, occasionally I like to talk about some more specific to myself, and what I do at Mudd! I’ve talked about this a few times in my blogs, but […]

Hi all, Long time no see! Mudd’s back in full swing, and it’s taken a bit of time to get into the rhythm of things after summer, but now it’s time for your regularly programmed admissions blogs. In this first post I want to take a bit of time to reflect on what Mudders did […]

Tip of the Month: Interviews

September 14, 2017

Interviews can seem daunting but they don’t have to be. At the end of the day, it’s just another conversation.
