Mudders on the Move

October 18, 2018

There are a lot of ways to get to Mudd: plane, train, bus, freelines (?), and commonly – by car. Sometimes, even from as far as 5,000 miles! After a few days in a small sedan, Mudd’s dorm rooms can feel refreshingly spacious. I asked a few Mudders about their experiences taking road trips either […]

Adventures Close to Home: The Three T’s and Baldy Trail

October 17, 2018

One of the best things (in my opinion) about Mudd is its proximity to so many great national parks, hiking trails, and mountains. I am two hours from Joshua Tree, Mojave National Preserve, Los Padres National Forest, San Bernadino National Forest, Anza Borrego Desert State Park, and more. Additionally, I am only a bit further […]

And Then There Was Grad School

October 16, 2018

Hey guys! So this week I’m going to talk about something that I don’t know very much about: Grad school! “But Izzy”, you might ask, “why write about something you don’t know about?” This would be a reasonable question. And the answer is that I have veeeeery recently decided that I want to go to […]

Surfing Dogs do the Im-paw-sible

October 12, 2018

Hey everybody! I’m Sophia and I’m a frosh at Mudd this year. This last weekend, I attended a CAP event, which is an activity subsidized by the Committee for Activities Planning that takes students off campus for a little while. There are concerts, musicals, beach trips, and more. The one I went to took a […]

HMC Lesson One: Asking for help

October 8, 2018

Hello, my name’s Mason! I’m a freshman at Mudd, and this is my first blog post! I was not the archetypal good high school student. I procrastinated on big assignments, I didn’t study as much as I should have, etc.. I got through most of high school without really working for my good grades and […]

Why Mudd?

October 4, 2018

As you might know, one of the essay questions we ask applicants to answer is, “what influenced you to apply to Harvey Mudd?” When I was applying to Harvey Mudd College in the winter of 2012, I had actually missed that question altogether until 3pm on January 1st when I was about to submit my […]

A Normal Tuesday of a [non-Engineering] Junior

October 2, 2018

Hi, I am Eleanor, a junior joint Physics-Math major. Recently, I was brainstorming blog ideas when I noticed that there have only been 2 blog posts (from 2016 and 2013) that outline a day in the life of a Mudder. Furthermore, these were both written by Engineering majors. This was a clear message to me […]
