Get Involved in Student Organizations
Don’t forget that life exists beyond the classroom! Student organizations help you make friends and get involved with your campus and your community. Some organizations also give you the opportunity to network with other students who share your career goals nationwide. Becoming active in campus life enriches your college experience and helps you develop leadership skills and self-confidence.
Building on the natural camaraderie between students and faculty in the program, the Department of Mathematics sponsors two organizations to benefit of students like you.
Mathematics and Computer Science Club - The Mathematics club helps Mathematics majors get to know their fellow students and faculty members outside the classroom. In addition to monthly pizza parties, this organization usually sponsors a fall picnic, a faculty-student softball game, a Halloween party, and a Christmas party. Current members come up with new activities every year to inspire them to think mathematically and help them to develop lasting relationships with their classmates and faculty. Contact the faculty sponsors, Dr. Keith Dreiling, Mrs. Michelle Zeng, or Dr. Bill Weber, to get involved.
Kappa Mu Epsilon - The FHSU chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon, the national mathematics honor society, honors students who have met a high level of academic distinction. Kappa Mu Epsilon holds initiation ceremonies in the Fall semester of each year. Students must have a 3.0 grade point average in mathematics, a 2.75 overall GPA, and be enrolled in or have completed their third semester of calculus. Because of the overlap between KME and the MACS club, the two organizations hold many events and meetings together throughout the year. If you have any questions about KME, contact Dr. Lanee Young.
Mathematics majors can also become a valuable part of many campus-wide organizations, like Tigers in Service or the Student Government Association. For more information about the other organizations on the FHSU campus, visit the Center for Student Involvement Web site.
