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?

Mudd is a lot of hard work. It’s true, and it’s one of the reasons a lot of people come here. You get the opportunity to push yourself as far as you’ll go, and see what in the sciences you’re passionate about or enjoy. Occasionally, however, it can be a bit much. None of us […]
