    The food at Mudd is passable. It lacks variation after a while, but students can go to the other Claremont Colleges to dine as well. Out of all of the other Claremont Colleges, Harvey Mudd is known to have the best food.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    There are multiple different options at Harvey Mudd, and you can always go off campus to one of the other dining halls at the other Claremont Colleges.

    The Hoch Shanahan dining hall is always clean and has a positive atmosphere, with good, edible food. If you get tired of the Hoch, there are nearby dining halls on the other college campuses within walking distance, which are also good.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

    They don't have any greek life because each house/dorm building already feels like they are all united and compete against each other.

    None! It's great because although your dorm culture substitutes for greek culture, it's less exclusive than a fraternity or sorority, so every student can be friends, study, and party with all the other students and no one is excluded.
