This tiny college outside the LA didn’t exist up until 1957 when welcomed its first incoming freshmen. The founder Joe Platt had one idea when he started this project. He wanted for his student to think really hard about the work they are doing, and what the consequences of that work will be. Nowadays, Mudd is notorious for its severe, high-performing student body, with graduates who even outperform those in Ivy League. It is listed as one of the best colleges, but also one that ranks the best value colleges.
The students work harder than at any other place, but later they are compensated with excellent credentials and salary benefits.
