Department of Mathematics and Statistics

Events

Our department is very active with speaking events, student club activities, and celebrations of milestones. At the end of the spring semester, the department holds an awards banquet to recognize the achievements of our students and award scholarships. Our main speaking series is the R. W. Yeagy Colloquium, sponsored by the College of Sciences and Mathematics.

Here are the main speaking events in our department for Spring 2009. Click on the links for the event's flyer/abstract or PowerPoint presentation.
