So, what do Mudders do in their spare time? A whole bunch of stuff! We have the DSA Muchachos, a group of students who plan activities throughout the year.

Events range from crib races (racing in a crib, dressed as a baby) to battle tie-dye (foam noodles + white t-shirts + running + whacking people + dye = chaos) to Wednesday Nighters (a showcase for student talents or lack thereof). Programs are planned every Wednesday and then once a weekend throughout the semester. To see what the Muchachos have been up to, check the Harvey Mudd College DSA Activities Facebook page. Or, if you have an event you would like to see there, share it with the Muchachos with the event suggestion form.

Just look for posters or stop by the Dean’s Desk in Hoch-Shanahan Dining Commons for more information and come join us.

Annual events include:
