Harvey Mudd College Reviews

The academics are fantastic, just as rigorous the school an former students indicate, and I definitely feel like I am learning enough to get a career.
However, I am concerned about the political atmosphere. The professors, students, and even the president of our school openly display their political leanings, which I think is inappropriate. For example, the day after Donald Trump was elected, one of my finals was postponed, my physics teacher sobbed in class, and my chemistry course was canceled. I understand and fully support the college's faculty to have these opinions, though I feel it was extremely inappropriate to express these views in lieu of teaching.
In addition, the school's administration has begun giving into left -leaning organizations on campus, eventually causing two whole days of class to be canceled. These educational hindrances are not what I am paying $70,000+ for.

Academics at Harvey Mudd are exceptional. It is rigorous and not always rewarding, but at the end of the day, you learn a lot. Plenty of exciting classes to take, both at Mudd and at the other 5Cs. Mudders are easy to get along with. Only major issue with Mudd is the lack of grade inflation which can hurt your chances of getting into a top Grad school program. Getting a job after graduating from Mudd is easier and very rewarding.
First, community here is absolutely wonderful. The support I get from my peers, upperclassmen, profs, staffs and faculties are indescribably strong.
