Harvey Mudd nurtures multidimensional, multitalented critical thinkers so they have a broad education, understand how things are related and consider their impact on society.
“Summer research can be a transformative experience. When you are in high school or just starting college, being good at science means you know how to get the right answer. But as you transition into research you realize that being a scientist means working on problems where there are no answers.”
