What Students Are Saying

4.51 Average Rating
Prospective students need to maintain a good GPA in school, but they need to be well-rounded as well. Leadership positions, and excelling in things other than school (sports, the arts, etc) are all taken into account at Mudd. Mudders are unique and dedicated to all that they do, and they have many interests.

You will hear from everyone how challenging the curriculum at Harvey Mudd is. It is probably more challenging than you currently imagine it. But the material you learn, and the intelligent and enthusiastic people you work with every day, makes all the tough studying worthwhile.
A Mudder
When you go to visit, don't just look specifically at Harvey Mudd. It's part of the 5 Claremont Colleges and that contributes to the school's culture, so learn a little about how the colleges are all connected, not only academically but socially as well.
Callie
Harvey Mudd College is indeed the most hard-working college in the US. I, for example, never get to go to bed before 1:00 during workdays.
First year is pass/fail which means you get to enjoy your freshman year.
Profs are really nice and they are waiting to answer your questions, work may be hard, but it's even harder to fail.

Think carefully before coming here if you have learning disabilities. You are overworked and will not have the time you need to compensate for it.
