5 College Freshman

Administration: The Honor Code basically says "Don't be a jerk." That includes academic honesty in take-home exams (which are wonderful), respecting people's opinions, and common sense. Though no form of administration is perfect, Mudd does a great job in creating a friendly community. For example, I don't have to worry about people stealing my laptop if I leave it out in the campus center. I can express my opinions and people will not castigate me for them (rather, thoughtful discussions would arise, and that's perfectly okay).

Administration: They force you to rat out your peers if they do something wrong and they call this the Honor Code. It is not followed very closely even though they make the tour guides make it seem like it is to prospective students. All the teachers jump to accusing students of violating the honor code very quickly even if they are just checking answers and there is something wrong with the homework problems.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
