Harvey Mudd College's mission is to educate scientists, engineers, and mathematicians well-versed in the social sciences and humanities so that they better understand the impact of their work on society. The college offers four-year degrees in chemistry, mathematics, physics, computer science, biology, and engineering, as well as interdisciplinary degrees in mathematical biology, and a joint major in either computer science and mathematics, or biology and chemistry. Students may also elect to complete an Independent Program of Study (IPS) made up of courses of their own choosing. Usually between two and five students graduate with an IPS degree each year. Finally, one may choose an off-campus major offered by any of the other Claremont Colleges, provided one also completes a minor in one of the technical fields that Harvey Mudd offers as a major.

Because of its mission statement, Harvey Mudd places an unusually strong emphasis on general science education outside one's major, with a full one-third of courses in this area, known as the "common core." Students are required to take another one-third of their courses in the humanities, keeping with the school's tradition of science with a conscience. The final one-third comprises courses in the student's major. The integration of research and education is an important component of the educational experience at Harvey Mudd; upon graduation, every student has had some kind of research experience, in the form of a senior thesis or a Clinic Program experience. The undergraduate focus of HMC means that, unlike many other science and engineering institutions, undergraduates at HMC get unique access to research positions over the summer and during the school year. Look up mission statement in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


A unique aspect of an HMC education is the Clinic Program, in which teams of students work for a year on a project supplied by a company, make regular reports to the company, and, at the end of the year, deliver a product. There are Clinic projects in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics, and other majors. This kind of real-world experience gives students a first-hand look at a particular industry, and gives the company an inexpensive team of four students, many of whom they recruit after graduation.

  • Mildred E. Mudd Hall ("East Dorm")
  • West Hall ("West")
  • North Hall ("North")
  • Marks Residence Hall ("South")
  • J. L. Atwood Residence Hall ("Atwood")
  • Case Residence Hall ("Case")
  • Ronald and Maxine Linde Residence Hall ("Linde")
  • Frederick and Susan Sontag Residence Hall ("Sontag")

Atwood and Case were occasionally referred to as New Dorm and New Dorm II up until the addition of Linde and Sontag; Mildred E. Mudd Hall and Marks Hall are almost invariably referred to as East and South.


When Case was being built some students decided as a prank to move all of the survey stakes in one direction.[13] They did such a precise job that the construction crew didn't notice until after they had laid the foundation, but California earthquake law forced them to reinspect the new location at some significant expense.[citation needed] Furthermore, the plumbing has never worked quite right. Case is also very occasionally known as Seventh dorm (despite being the sixth dorm built) or as the Pink Dorm due to the fact that the cinder blocks used in its construction are rather shrimp-colored. This article needs to be cleaned up to conform to a higher standard of quality. ...


It is notable that South Dorm is in the northwest corner of the quad. "East" was the first dorm, but it wasn't until West was built to the west of it that it was actually referred to as East. Then North was built, directly north of East. When the fourth dorm (Marks) was built, there was one corner of the quad available (the northwest) and one directional name (South) left.[14] It got both, and to this day South is more 'north' on the compass than North dorm is.


The fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth dorms are Atwood, Case, Linde, and Sontag, respectively. They were collectively referred to as "the Colonies" by some students, a reference to the fact that they are newer and are at the far end of the campus, a full two blocks away from the academic buildings; these dorms are now more commonly referred to as "the Outer Dorms." The college purchased an apartment building adjacent to the newer dorms to house additional students, but it was demolished to make room for the newest dorm, Sontag.


Since students from all four classes can live in each of the dormitories, several of the dorms have accumulated long-standing traditions and even 'personalities'.[15] Two examples of these traditions are the parties Long Tall Glasses (a formal affair thrown by North) and TQ Nite (a tequila-centered party thrown by West). However, the personalities of the dorms morph over time as Mudd alumni are apt to find out upon visiting their alma mater years after they've graduated. Alma mater is Latin for nourishing mother. It was used in ancient Rome as a title for the mother goddess, and in Medieval Christianity for the Virgin Mary. ...


Athletics

Athletics teams from Claremont McKenna College, Harvey Mudd College, and Scripps College compete as one team. Male athletic teams are called the Stags, and women's teams are called the Athenas. The teams participate in the NCAA's Division III and in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. A member of the Claremont Colleges, Claremont McKenna College is a small, highly selective, private coeducational, liberal arts college enrolling about 1100 students with a curricular emphasis on government, economics, and public policy. ... Scripps College is a liberal arts womens college in Claremont, California. ... The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA, often pronounced N-C-Double-A or N-C-Two-A ) is a voluntary association of about 1,200 institutions, conferences, organizations and individuals that organizes the athletic programs of many colleges and universities in the United States. ... The Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) is a College Athletic Conference that operates in the NCAAs Division III. It consists of eleven small private schools which are located in Southern California and organized into eight athletic programs. ...


The HMC honor code

HMC students developed, live by and enforce an Honor Code themselves. The Honor Code states: An honor code or honor system is a set of rules or principles governing a community based on a set of rules or ideals that define what constitutes honorable behavior within that community. ...

Each member of ASHMC [Associated Students of Harvey Mudd College] 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.

The Honor Code is so well followed that the college entrusts the students to 24-hour per day access to all buildings including labs and timed take-home closed-book exams. (See external links below for more information.)


Architecture

The Norman F. Sprague Memorial Library
The Norman F. Sprague Memorial Library

The original buildings of campus were designed by Edward Durell Stone. Most are covered with thousands of square concrete features, called "warts" by the students, which would be perfectly suited to buildering except that, while some are set into the wall, others are simply glued on. In addition, these warts have the unusual usefulness of being great 'shelves' for unicycles and skateboards. One can walk towards Galileo Hall and see the warts (especially those near the entrances of buildings) being used as racks for unicycles and skateboards. Interestingly enough, the unofficial mascot of Harvey Mudd (featured on many college handbooks and other publications) is one of these concrete blocks with a face, arms, and legs, named "Wally the Wart."

Most of the computer labs and many classrooms are located in the basements (called the Libra Complex) of the concrete-block buildings. All of the buildings that make up the Libra Complex are interconnected via a series of underground tunnels, enabling convenient inter-building access (such as during times of rainy weather or by people averse to sunlight).


Transportation on campus

In the early 1970s the first unicycle appeared on campus. The notion caught on, and for a time there were dozens on campus. For many students it was a "rite of passage" to learn to ride. The unicycling club, known as Gonzo Unicycle Madness, was formed, and to this day organizes an annual eight plus mile ride (each way) known as "The Foster's Run," to "The Donut Man" donut shop in Glendora (originally known as "Foster's Donuts" hence the name of the event) for strawberry donuts. Upon return to the campus, the ritual of the "shakedown" takes place (dismounting and then repeatedly jumping up and down in the dormitory courtyard); a necessary procedure after a unicycle ride of nearly twenty miles, especially for male riders. At irregular intervals club members also meet to play unicycle hockey. In the early 1990s, though, the ridership of unicycles waned at the college. Currently, very few Mudders ride unicycles. However, despite this drop in popularity, unicycling continues to be an integral part of the Mudd mythos. A juggler riding a unicycle A unicycle is a one-wheeled human powered vehicle. ...

A juggler riding a unicycle A unicycle is a one-wheeled human powered vehicle. ...


Other than walking, the leading form of transportation among Mudders is skateboarding. Because the paths of Mudd are smooth and the route to the academic building on one side of campus from the dorms is so straightforward, skateboarding to class is very popular—and Mudders as a whole skate more than the students of any of the nearby Claremont Colleges.


Pranks

Galileo Hall and Hixon Courtyard
Galileo Hall and Hixon Courtyard

Pranks at Harvey Mudd are known for being clever, amusing, technically precise, and reversible (by policy, pranksters must leave contact information, and reverse the prank within 24 hours if told to do so. However, the Fleming cannon incident was a notable detachment from this credo).

  • One student returned from a long weekend away to discover his room filled from floor to ceiling with inflated plastic garbage bags. The pranksters had used high-powered fans to inflate them.
  • In 1993, the new Dean of Faculty discovered that some Mudders had moved everything in his office to the other side of campus, inside the lounge of the newly opened Linde Dorm. Everything in his office was perfectly organized and functional—even his telephone and Internet connection worked. The Dean and his staff spent the day working in Linde, and students moved his office back that night. (This prank was also featured in the film Toy Soldiers.)
  • Students took sod left over from the construction of Linde Dorm and (after laying down plastic sheeting) placed it inside the office of the Dean of Students, returning all furniture to its original location. The dean worked on grass carpet for a day.
  • Another prank involved removing everything from a student's room, lining the walls with plastic, filling it two feet deep with water, and adding about 200 goldfish.
  • One Harvey Mudd student returned from a trip to find that his bed had been converted into a steamboat, with steam stacks filled with dry ice for added effect.
  • After expressing his hatred for spikey balls -- the liquidambar seed pods that caused him to fall off of his skateboard -- a Harvey Mudd student found his room filled with the little spikey things. They were in his drawers, in his pants' pockets, in his guitar case, and were even rigged to fall on his head when he opened the door.
  • While a West Dorm student was out of town, students unbolted his room's outer wall from the cinder blocks and parked his car inside the room, then reattached the wall. Then they had Campus Security give him a parking ticket.

Rivalry with Caltech

There is a long-standing rivalry between Harvey Mudd and the nearby Caltech, although this rivalry is basically unacknowledged by Caltech. For example, in one prank, students from Mudd stole a memorial cannon from Fleming House at Caltech (originally from the National Guard) by dressing as maintenance people and carting it off on a flatbed truck for "cleaning."[16] Harvey Mudd eventually returned the cannon after the Caltech President threatened to take legal action. (In 2006, MIT replicated the prank and moved the same cannon to their campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts.[17]) The California Institute of Technology (commonly referred to as Caltech)[1] is a private, coeducational university located in Pasadena, California, in the United States. ...

Another Mudd prank involved slight modifications to a freeway sign. By placing parentheses around "Pasadena City College", an institution much less prestigious than Caltech, Mudd students changed the sign to read:
