I think that one thing that has been somewhat overlooked by prior commenters is the effect of the Honor Code on those who violate it. The Honor Code is at its best when people who violate it come forward of their own volition and work hard to build back trust between themself and the community/professors. Professors have expressed this to me. My impression is that at other institutions, one strike (such as cheating on an exam) could be enough to fail you in the course, or even get you expelled. At Mudd, professors and students genuinely care about rebuilding their community when Honor Code violations happen, which is why first-time violators often do not get very harsh sanctions.
