I can clearly remember the time I walked into a computer lab in my high school, and sat down next to a senior. It was springtime, and college decisions had just been released. Passing by the ‘senior lunch tables’ in the cafeteria, much of the conversation revolved around the place they would study and live at for the next four years of their lives.
I casually asked her, ‘What are you up to?’ She showed me her screen: a Google Maps view of some apartments. The people walking along the sidewalk carried backpacks, textbooks or briefcases. I looked to her for an explanation:
I then realized that the address that she had put into the search bar was the street address of a state university. She had gained admission into several colleges, but she had never had the chance to visit any of them. In my high school – an international school in Singapore – most of the students were U.S.-bound for university, but quite a few of them would never have the opportunity to visit any schools before that May 1st deadline.
Today’s blog post is dedicated specifically to those who may not be able to visit Mudd before important deadlines, like Early Decision II or Regular Decision, or even the future enrollment date. I hope that these photos give you an every day view of Harvey Mudd College from a student perspective.
Those are all the photos I have for now, but as usual, I’ll try to include as many photos as possible in all future blog posts. Let me know if you guys have any feedback – you can comment on this blog or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
