My younger brother is about to apply early decision to Harvey Mudd. What's the area like there?

He's applying as a computer science major and, according to his college counselor, he's got a really good chance of getting in.
However, we live in a rather sheltered suburb of the Bay Area, and I'm afraid he doesn't have too many street smarts. I myself attended college pretty close to home for similar reasons.
I know he has to learn life skills eventually, but I don't want him to step blindly into a situation and be overwhelmed by experiences, especially negative ones.
Just wondering if anyone lives around the area who can chime in on the surrounding atmosphere of the school, how far he can safely venture, etc.
