We’re into problem-solving.
We prepare our majors for a variety of careers as well as for graduate school. Some of our recent alumni are pursuing advanced degrees, some are teaching, and others are working in the private or governmental sectors as financial analysts, actuaries, software engineers, or programmers.
Since our classes are small, we get to know our students well. Furthermore, our majors help us select and schedule classes each year and we regularly offer Independent Studies and Special Topics courses of interest to our students. We have recently introduced a minor in Information Systems in concert with the Department of Business Management.
Math Is Fun
At our weekly seminars for our majors and faculty, we might have student or faculty presentations, host a guest speaker, or watch a math-related movie.
Our majors and minors can apply in advance of the general room selection to live in the Math and Computer Science Suite in Chester Hall. This modern suite accommodates four math and computer science students who want to live and study together in one double and two single rooms. The suite also provides a common area with TV/DVD system, a math library, and a computer, printer, and scanner. Chester Hall offers all its residents a full residential kitchen on the first floor, along with lounges and study areas throughout the building.
