Campus Visit Notes for Harvey Mudd College


Visit Description:

Information session- It was informative and gave insight into what the admissions office was looking for. The guy leading it wasn't the best person they could've used though. He was informative but not that persuasive in promoting the school (I already like the school but it would've been nice for my parents). He was very "honest" but did have a pretty good joke at the end! It wasn't long, maybe 30 minutes?

Tour- For the campus tour we had a nice young lady who is a rising sophomore and was very informed about the school. I was a bit surprised at how small the school seemed to be from the tour though. Probably because we were not shown the whole college. First we were taken to the residences and shown one of the rooms, which was nice to see. Then we went on the academic leg of the tour, which was the best part for me, because we got to see the underground tunnels where they have a bunch of labs and students working on projects! It was really great that Harvey Mudd showed us that.

Overall, the tour showcased much of the academic side of the school which was great and demonstrates that if you want a rigorous STEM education, Mudd would be great for you.
