Campus Visit Notes for Harvey Mudd College


Visit Description:

my tour guide was a sophomore, and he was very much into mudd. first thing we went through was the academic buildings. i expected the campus to be bigger, but i managed to figure out its basic layout in a few minutes. i dont have too much to say about those buildings, not much to know. touring the dorms was probably the highlight of my trip there. he gave us some pretty telling stories about west. i don't really want to go into it because i don't think i can do it justice. all i want to say is that if you're interested, it's definitely worth visiting. you won't get the same feeling if you're not there for yourself
