The mathematics department offers many opportunities and organizes events throughout the course of the academic year to enhance the experience of our majors. In addition to end-of-year gathering and holiday festivities, the department also features other opportunities, several of which are distinct to the major. They include:
Math Help Center
Located in Fanning 313 and operating 3-4 times a week during the school year, the student-run help center features advanced majors assisting students in lower-level mathematics courses.
Pi Mu Epsilon
Connecticut College formed the Connecticut Epsilon Chapter of the mathematics honor society Pi Mu Epsilon. Once a year, a ceremony is held to induct new members.
Student Seminar Series
We have a weekly seminar series, featuring talks by faculty or guest speakers during the first part of the semester, and talks by senior majors during the later part.
The math department regularly compiles a team for the Putnam Exam. Held each December and open to undergraduates in colleges and universities in the US and Canada, the exam is designed to test originality as well as technical competence.
The department also offers the opportunity for you to participate in the Mathematical Competition in Modeling. MCM is a contest where teams of undergraduates use mathematical modeling to present their solutions to real-world problems.
Student Advisory Board
Like every program at Connecticut College, Mathematics has a Student Advisory Board made up of sophomores, juniors and seniors. This group has responsibility for several important tasks, including administering student evaluations for courses within the major and meeting with the faculty to discuss faculty and curriculum issues. In addition, the Student Advisory Board suggests and helps organize extracurricular activities, including lectures, field trips, and special events at Parents' Weekend and Commencement.
