Located in Claremont, California is an 829-person liberal arts college that might go unnoticed to the uninitiated.
It routinely shows up on lists that rank the best value colleges and, based on median salary, its graduates out-earn those from Harvard and Stanford about 10 years into their careers.
The school is a member of the Claremont Colleges Consortium — which includes Claremont McKenna College, Pitzer College, Pomona College, Scripps College, Claremont Graduate University and Keck Graduate Institute of Applied Life Sciences.
During our five-hour visit, there was only one 15-minute period where campus seemed busy.
Scooters, bicycles, and even unicycles are also popular on campus.
A hallmark of Mudd is the strong focus the school places on STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) disciplines.
