Campus Strictness: Students get a lot of freedom, administration trust

Campus Strictness: Administration Treats You Like an Adult – Lax rules. HMC students are smart enough to take care of themselves 99% of the time and the administration gets that. If you do something at a party that's really stupid or harmful to yourself or others then there's consequences (ex: I have a friend on drinking probation for a semester) but outside of that nobody cares. Part of the reason so many students live and want to live on campus is that they don't feel like they have to get away if they want to drink.

Campus Strictness: Pretty Chill – The current policy is basically do what you want, but if you do something stupid you're screwed. Underage drinking is abundant in Linde and North dorms, and some what also in West. However, since the administration mainly leaves students alone, we are able to be responsible and can avoid things such as front loading before going out at night.

High School Student

Campus Strictness: Mudd does not pay for alcohol at parties. It does, however, pay for parties, all of which are free for all students. Mudd goes by the "work hard, play hard" philosophy, and part of that is encouraging students to let off some steam on the weekends. If the students throwing a party want to have alcohol, that is up to them. And yes, the alcohol is free to all students.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Campus Security is generally quite lax about drugs and drinking. In accordance with the Honor Code, the main rule is to stay out of trouble while you’re under the influence. If a student breaks something or gets hurt while they’ve been drinking, they are put on alcohol probation. Students that continue to do stupid things while drunk are subject to severe punishment, including possible expulsion. People who smoke do so openly, outside in the dorm lounges. For the most part, they only get harassed if they set off the smoke alarm and upset the whole dorm. Students look out for each other and dole out punishment as needed, and it usually isn’t necessary to involve Campus Security. Mudd funds all of the parties including alcohol, so all of the alcoholic parties are free to students, whether or not you are underage. The loose alcohol policy also discourages frontloading—drinking heavily before a party so that you can stay drunk all night.

The Mudd Honor Code is the only thing you absolutely must live by as a student. Each member of the Associated Students of HMC is responsible for maintaining his or her integrity and the integrity of the college community, in all academic matters and in all affairs concerning the community. At Harvey Mudd, students take the Honor Code very seriously, and as a result, we are usually left to our own devices. It’s one of the best parts of Mudd.
