October 27, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

There is always work to be done at Mudd, but sometimes you just need to take a break and relax. Saturday nights are good for social events, including parties, Late Night in the LAC, and spending time with friends. Parties at Mudd happen regularly, and many of the large ones have distinct themes. Case holds […]

Taking A Break

October 21, 2016, by Izzy Jones

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 […]

The core curriculum is a unique component of our Harvey Mudd education; we sample all of the different majors, like computer science with CS5 and biology with Bio52.

Poke Dot is a Hawaiian sea-food restaurant that just opened smack dab in the center of the village, and it is what’s missing in your life. I first tried poke (pronounced po-kay) […]

A Day in the Life of a Junior

October 13, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

I don’t quite know how it happened, but I guess I am a junior now. I feel like I just started college at Mudd, but time flies, and I am halfway through my time here. My schedule has drastically changed since frosh year, when almost all of my classes were part of the Core. I now […]

Major Spotlight: CS Math

October 8, 2016, by Ramita Kondepudi

At Mudd, finally declaring your major is a big deal. We have until the end of sophomore year – that’s two years – to decide what we want to do, with up to four semesters of the Core Curriculum backing up our final choice. While getting exposure to different fields is a major perk of […]

Copper Chef

October 7, 2016, by Izzy Jones

Hey everybody! As you may or may not know, the Hoch-Shanahan (or simply the Hoch), Mudd’s dining hall is generally recognized at being pretty spectacular in comparison to a lot of other college dining halls, with fresh food and lots of options. This week, we even had a visiting Norwegian chef come serve (the lamb […]

Resistors, Capacitors, Inductors, Oh My! (aka Summer in Beijing)

September 26, 2016, by Charlee Van Eijk

你好, School is back in full swing, so I figure I should tell you all about my summer before I forget it entirely. After a brief stint at the admissions office I spent the majority of summer in Beijing, China, taking three courses at Peking University. I studied electrical engineering, Chinese history, and introductory mandarin. […]

The New Stems

September 23, 2016, by Izzy Jones

Hey guys! Time for another blog. Today I thought I’d talk about one of the classes I’m taking this semester, E79, the new version of the class E59, more colloquially know as Stems! This year, Stems has changed, adding a lab portion in to the usual class, and also trying to do reverse classrooms instead […]
