What Students Are Saying

4.51 Average Rating
One of the most difficult colleges in the nation, at least in terms of homework and academic expectations.
A Mudder
With the Common Core as 1/3 of the freshman requirements, as well as HSA (Humanities, Social Sciences and Arts) as another 1/3 and your intended major as the last 1/3, Harvey Mudd truly allows for a well-rounded education. The honor code is a major factor in the teachings of the school, and you can always travel to one of the other 5 Cs if Harvey Mudd doesn't offer a certain class.

I LOVE this school! We get to examine real nano-materials during freshman year, (if you take that elective) and get to build real circuits that use solar panel to charge our phones. Profs here are really nice and are right there waiting to answer questions.
Xi from China
It's not that each individual class is super hard - just the fact that we have to take so many of them at once.
Lauren from Kailua, HI
It's tough! No boring and simple but tediously long problem sets here; instead we've got (tediously hard) homework with a few questions that will make you delve deep into the subject.
Isabell from Thousand Oaks, CA
Definitely the most challenging school you are likely to find. It will push you to your limits.
