For First-year Students

Do any of these describe you?

- Do you like mathematics?
- Do you like Pizza?
- Have you ever wondered what one can do with a Math major?
- Would you like an extra hour of academic credit for participating in an informal (and fun) seminar?

... that calculus is only one small part of mathematics?

... that lots of new mathematics is being discovered every day?

... that Bill Gates proved (and published) a theorem as an undergraduate?

Want to know more?
