April 8, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

Once the class of 2020 started receiving their acceptance letters, their class Facebook page began to fill with introductions and questions about Mudd.

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.
