Female Engineering Major C/O 2019
To what extent do people of different races and sexual orientations mix socially?
I think they mix really well. Overall, the 5 C’s do a good job with feminism, gender equality, and the entire LGBTQ+ community. Sexuality wise it’s very accepting, but for race, I’m not too sure. I hear stories here and there, and a lot of my Black friends tell me there aren’t many Black people here. [The population is 31% White, 3% Black, 20% Hispanic, and 19% Asian.]
How has the size of your school influenced your social experience? [The total undergraduate population is 889 students.]
I think it’s affected it a lot. I’ve felt lonely because I couldn’t really fit in anywhere here, so going to a small school was hard, but I think it was a good experience. There are a lot of nerdy and introverted people here, and I am a nerd myself, but I feel as though I’m socially aware.
Do people generally seem happy with Mudd by senior year? Do people leave loving your school?
I think there’s a love-hate relationship. They love the fact that they have graduated, but they are definitely bittersweet about the memories and friends they have made.
