New Mascots at Harvey Mudd.

This #1 undergraduate engineering college just got some new mascots. In addition to the official mascots of the Claremont-McKenna consortium of schools, the Stags (men’s teams) and Athenas (women’s teams), Mudders celebrate Robespierre the rhino and Timer the squirrel. These two characters are familiar to Mudders from their freshman-year Special Relativity class, in which Robespierre and Timer are used in scenarios for problem sets. Look out for a rhino “moving at 3/5c,” or a squirrel that “holds a watch keeping track of how fast spaceships or rhinos . . . travel.” Go Robespierre and Timer!
