4 College Freshman

Athletics: I love working out in the LAC and at the Scripps gym. There is a lot of quality equipment for everyone to use. I wish sports were a bigger part of the Mudd culture. The only reason I've ever gone to games or anything was to support friends. Otherwise I wouldn't have even known about the event.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I think since we're building a new dorm off campus housing won't be necessary/ an easy option to pursue.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I love going off campus for food if I can. There are awesome options (there's a wonderful all you can eat sushi place in the village) and the food is high quality and affordable.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is awesome. You can really tell how much they care about the students.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: You definitely get the aid that you need/deserve. The people in the financial aid office really care about the students, so working with them is a real pleasure.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't go out much, but when I do I definitely enjoy myself.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I think we're very lucky that we have the options that we do. Not a lot of schools have the variety and quality that all of the 5C's, especially Mudd, have.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms aren't exactly the prettiest, but they're by no means unlivable. I really enjoy my room and suite and I love the dorm culture.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is not allowed at the Claremont Colleges.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Really reach out to people in your dorms. Each dorm has a pretty great community.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm applying to transfer out. Harvey Mudd students tend to be very cliquey and hyper-focused on their work.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid is pretty generous. I received a great scholarship to be a part of Harvey Mudd's Summer Institute.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: You feel completely safe no matter what time of night you're walking around at (even if you're alone).

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus dining in The Village is so good, but is a 20 minute walk away and tends to be pricey.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Many people from the other 5Cs rave that Harvey Mudd has the best parties.

College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports aren't a huge deal at Mudd. We have the other colleges to make up for our subpar athletic facilities.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: The administration is the best part of Harvey Mudd. They truly care about the students' well-being and safety.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Claremont is really charming, but expensive. It's not much of a college town. Restaurants close pretty early in the night.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I have never lived off-campus, so I wouldn't know. The vast majority of people do not either.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: In general, no one cares about varsity sports (we have to combine with CMC and Scripps to field teams) but there are a fair amount of Mudders that participate in them, especially XC and track. Intramurals seem to be fairly popular and there are a lot of different intramural sports you can play; I think basketball, volleyball, and innertube water polo are some of the most popular. Mudd has a fairly small but adequate gym with weird hours (11 a.m. to 1 a.m.???) but we are allowed to use Scripps College's gorgeous gym and no one ever checks ID's at Pomona's fieldhouse.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Food is good, odd hours for college students though

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Most students who have aid are on work-study.

Everyone agrees that attending school at Mudd is both a gift and a curse. The workload is immense, the tests are sometimes impossible, and a two question homework assignment can take all night. The reason most of us came to Mudd has a lot to do with the academic integrity of the College (we have one of the lowest grade inflation rates out of any college in the U.S.) and a lot more to do with the community. The professors here are amazing and the deans know students by name. The students are generally respectful of and helpful to each other.

One of the main reasons that Mudd is such a strong community is the Honor Code. The Honor Code is a way of life for students and is created and governed by students. Students here take it to heart. It means closed-book, closed-notes, take-home finals; being able to leave your possessions unguarded when you take a coffee break; 24-hour access to any academic building; having your wallet returned to you if you lose it in lab; and not having to lock your door, even if you go home for the weekend. Mudd has a trusting community. People look out for each other.
Along with academic strength and a good technical based education, the community makes Mudd one of the best schools around. HMC does a great job at weaving a unique social experience with an academic curriculum matched by few other schools.
