Orientation 2015

Welcome to Harvey Mudd College’s Student Orientation 2015 website!

We’re glad you’ve decided to make Mudd your home for the next four years. You may now officially consider yourself a Mudder!

Nearly everything you need to submit to the College this summer will soon be available from this website. Deadlines and Received Checklists will soon be posted. There is a handy campus map, and the Harvey Mudd calendar will give you all the pertinent dates to keep in mind, including one very important date: August 26, 2014—the day you arrive on campus!

Welcome to the Harvey Mudd College family! We are preparing the campus and continuing to plan for the opening of the 2015–2016 school year.

The Dean of Students office works closely with all students throughout their Harvey Mudd College careers to ensure that they benefit as much as possible from their college experience.

Although we open at 8 a.m. on August 26, please note the first Orientation activity begins at 12:15 p.m., allowing you the morning to move into your room. If you are driving to Claremont and need to arrive in the evening prior to Orientation, please consult the website listing for accommodations. If you are flying, Ontario International Airport is much closer to campus than Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Our office offers a free shuttle service from Ontario Airport, but space is limited.

We expect that you will receive your room assignment and roommate information in late July. Until then, have an enjoyable and relaxing summer.

We look forward to your arrival in late August!

Vice President for Student Affairs, Dean of Students


2015 Orientation Directors (To be announced soon)!

We’re one of the only institutions in the nation that has a student-run Orientation and there will be two/three students planning it this year.  The Mudd experience is something unlike anything else, and Orientation is where it all starts. We can’t wait to meet you all and welcome up to the Mudd family!

Get ready for Orientation, we’re thrilled and hopefully so are you!
