A lot of general safety issues that happen at the Claremont colleges (the group of 5 colleges around Mudd) don't actually happen at Mudd. I see campus security around a lot, though, and we get emails about crimes and threats. At the time being there's been a lot of race talk as well, which has people a bit heated, so the bit of campus life I've experienced has been tinted by that a bit. I think I'd need more time at the school to make a firm rating of campus safety. The only thing I know about and have personal experience with is people from town sometimes steal our bikes and longboards.
Review Harvey Mudd College
Although Harvey Mudd is very difficult, and teachers will definitely push you with hard coursework, I've so far rarely felt alone. Teachers are accessible, there are always other classmates to work with and get help from, and the environment feels very positive in general, with a lot of interest in the wellbeing of the students. It's a great challenge.
People complain about Mudd's dining hall mostly because of repetition (which every college dining hall struggles with), but in terms of quality, the Hoch is one of the better options on the 5Cs. There are plenty of food options to choose from, and the staff is very courteous and is willing to make accommodations for those with dietary needs. Sometimes, the lines are long, but that's usually because of a really good dish and because students from the other 5Cs tend to flock to the Hoch.
