The best thing that can be said about HMC’s facilities is that resources are shared with the other 5C. The Scripps pool is definitely a great place to chill, and Claremont McKenna College has a great gym if you enjoy a solid workout. The Linde Activities center at Mudd has a workout center, basketball court, pool table, ping pong table, movies to check out, and even a massage chair. So students need not travel far for recreational activities.
The biggest downside concerning Mudd’s facilities is their aesthetic appeal, or lack thereof. HMC certainly doesn’t have the prettiest campus around. The facilities are practical, first and foremost. If you want pretty fountains and flowers, you can wander around Scripps (it’s a good place to go sunbathing). The labs and libraries are exceptional, especially Honnold/Mudd Library, which has about two million books for your browsing convenience. If you’re a workout junkie, CMC’s Ducey gym has the best workout center, including an indoor rock-climbing wall. Overall, if you can’t find what you’re looking for at Mudd, you most certainly will at one of the other 5C campuses.
