Major Mondays: Mathematical and Computational Biology

An interview with Tona Gonzales, senior Mathematical and Computational Biology major. How did you pick your major? Coming into Mudd I was already really into math.

Faculty Profile: Assistant Professor of Biology Jae Hur

Professor Jae Hur, an Assistant Professor of Biology at Harvey Mudd, didn’t always know he wanted a career in biology. In fact, he started college as a computer science major!

Major Monday: Engineering

An interview with Udeema Shakya, senior engineering major! How did you pick your major? I came into Mudd wanting to be an engineering major.

An interview with Savanah Diaz, senior joint Math-Physics major! How did you pick your major? I actually came to the Mudd thinking I wanted to do the Joint Chem-Bio major, but I took advantage of the Core by paying attention to each course in every field.

Throughout the semester, residence halls will hold dorm meetings to discuss different things going on in the dorm. The first meeting is generally to assign different roles (like dorm jocks, who are in charge of organizing intramural sports, or food representatives, who meet weekly with dining hall staff) and get to know each other.
