“Summer” in Sydney

September 15, 2016, by Bailey Meyer

The school year is upon us, and Mudd is quickly ramping up for the fall semester. The frosh are on pass/fail, (most of) the sophomores are finishing up core, and the upperclassmen have started clinic. However, like Ramita, I want to spend a bit of time reliving this summer. Well, actually, my summer just started […]

September 11, 2016, by Izzy Jones

Hey guys! I hope everybody had a good summer! I’m pretty sure I did. Probably. Now I’m back at Mudd, and that means back to blogging. Here at the beginning of Sophomore year, I couldn’t help but think a little about how I got here, and about first coming to Mudd. You may or may […]

Summer 2016: LA + food

September 8, 2016, by Ramita Kondepudi

Junior year is upon the Class of 2018! Two more years of this grueling, yet exhilarating, adventure that is college.

Tip of the Month: Interviews

September 1, 2016, by Raissa

Interviews can seem daunting but they don’t have to be. At the end of the day, it’s just another conversation with a slight twist. You may already know that the best conversations are often the product of a person’s willingness to share and to ask questions. Do interview, if you want to share and ask […]

A Pokemon Go Tour of Campus

August 18, 2016, by Maureen

I’ve been a Pokemon fan since Generation 1 (just the games, never cards or the anime). I grew up playing Red on my GameBoy Color (wow, what a dated sentence!), and was so excited when I first saw the trailer for Pokemon Go. The app has not disappointed me (with the exception of some of glitches and update […]

Sophomore Soliloquy

June 1, 2016, by Charlee Van Eijk

Hi readers, happy summer! With sophomore year in the books I thought it would be appropriate to reflect on the experience. This year has been a whirlwind of classes, swim meets, rockets, and all-nighters; chock full of unforgettable experiences and invaluable lessons. While I don’t think I can compress the entirety of the year into a single […]

Tip of the Month: Planning those summer visits to colleges…

June 1, 2016, by Peter

I am often asked to identify the best time to visit a college. There are two answers to this question. The first answer is to see the campus when everything is in its usual flow because this allows the guest to visit classes, to see people interacting, to stop someone in the dining hall, dorm, […]
