Harvey Mudd College

Harvey Mudd College is a private residential undergraduate science and engineering college in Claremont, California. It is one of the institutions of the contiguous Claremont Colleges which share adjoining campus grounds. Harvey Mudd College shares university resources such as libraries, dining halls, health services and campus security with the other Claremont Colleges, although each college is independently managed, with their own faculty, board of trustees and admissions procedures. Students at Harvey Mudd College may take classes at the other four undergraduate Claremont colleges; the Bachelor of Science diploma received at graduation is issued by Harvey Mudd College. The college is named after Harvey Seeley Mudd, one of the initial investors in the Cyprus Mines Corporation. Although involved in planning of the new institution, Mudd died; the college was funded by Mudd's friends and family, named in his honor. HMC offers four-year degrees in chemistry, physics, computer science and engineering, interdisciplinary degrees in mathematical biology, joint majors in computer science and mathematics.

Students may elect an Individual Program of Study or an off-campus major offered by any of the other Claremont Colleges, provided one completes a minor in one of the technical fields that Harvey Mudd offers as a major. In 2018, the Chronicle of Higher Education reported that, in response to student "complaints first to mental-health counselors and to outside evaluators", the college was "considering how to ease pressure on students without sacrificing rigor." For the class of 2022, the college admitted 594 applicants. Of the 224 freshmen who enrolled, the middle 50% of SAT scores were 770–800 in mathematics and 720–760 in critical reading, while the ACT Composite range was 34–35. Harvey Mudd, along with Wake Forest University, long held out as the last four-year colleges or universities in the U. S. to accept only SAT and not ACT test scores for admission. In August 2007, at the beginning of the application process for the class of 2012, HMC began accepting ACT results, a year after Wake Forest abandoned its former SAT-only policy.

In 2016, Harvey Mudd was for the second year in a row the most expensive college in the United States, with the total annual cost of attendance being $69,717. About 70% of freshmen receive financial aid; the official names for the dormitories of Harvey Mudd College are: Mildred E. Mudd Hall West Hall North Hall Marks Residence Hall J. L. Atwood Residence Hall Case Residence Hall Ronald and Maxine Linde Residence Hall Frederick and Susan Sontag Residence Hall Wayne and Julie Drinkward Residence Hall Until the addition of the Linde and Sontag dorms and Case dorms were referred to as New Dorm and New Dorm II. During the construction of Case Dorm some students decided as a prank to move all of the survey stakes six inches in one direction. South Dorm is in the northwest corner of the quad. "East" was the first dorm, but it wasn't until "West" was built west of it that it was referred to as "East". "North" was built, directly north of "East". When the fourth dorm was built, there was one corner of the quad available and one directional name, "South", remaining.

To this day "South" dorm is the northernmost HMC dorm. The fifth, seventh and ninth dorms built are Atwood, Linde and Drinkward, respectively, they were referred to as "the colonies" by some students, a reference to the fact that they were newer and at the farthest end of the campus. The college had purchased an apartment building adjacent to the newer dorms to house additional students, but it was demolished to make room for Sontag. Since any HMC student, regardless of class year, can live in any of the dormitories, several of the dorms have accumulated long-standing traditions and so-called'personalities'. A student-led organization, "Increasing Harvey Mudd's Traditional Practices", works to revive college traditions that have faded over the years, starts new traditions that the group hopes to see take root on campus, it hosts annual events such as the 5-Class Competition, Friday Nooners, Wednesday Nighters, Frosh/Soph Games, the Thomas-Garrett Affair. Athletes from Harvey Mudd compete alongside athletes from Claremont McKenna College and Scripps College as the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Stags and Athenas.

The teams participate in NCAA Division III in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The mascot for the men's teams is Stanley the Stag, the women's teams are the Athenas, their colors are gold. According to the Division III Fall Learfield Director's Cup Standings for the 2016-2017 year, CMS ranks 12th among all Division III programs, first among SCIAC colleges. There are women's teams. Men's sports Women's sports Baseball — Bill Arce Field Basketball and Volleyball — Roberts Pavilion Football and Lacrosse — John Zinda Field Softball — Softball Field Soccer — John Pritzlaff Field Swimming and Diving — Matt M. Axelrood Pool Tennis — Biszantz Family Tennis Center Track and Field — Burns Track Complex The other sports combination of the Claremont Colleges, CMS' primary rival, is the team made up of Pomona College and Pitzer College known as the Pomona-Pitzer Sagehens.
