Student Organizations and Activities
As an SRU math major, you'll enjoy a strong sense of community through our lively student clubs, frequent activities, and dynamic study spaces. You'll also have opportunities to interact closely with our dedicated faculty, who are committed to excellence in teaching and eager to get to know you as an individual.
Our student-run Math Club is a very active organization, meeting once a month during the academic year. Meetings feature talks on math topics, information about careers in mathematics, and always, pizza!
Kappa Mu Epsilon
KME is a national honor society for mathematics. Started in 1931, there are now chapters at 114 schools. The SRU chapter was founded in 1999 and celebrates high achievement by students. Membership is by invitation only, and inductions are conducted once a year, usually in late spring.
Preservice Teachers of Mathematics
PTM is a student chapter of the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the premier national organization for math teachers at all grade levels. The club meets once a month to discuss aspects of the teaching profession, job search, and local conference and service opportunities. Practicing teachers or administrators are sometimes guest speakers.
Actuarial Science Club
A lot of our majors are planning to become actuaries, so this club is really active. Once-a-month meetings might be about national exam preparations, or how-tos for resumes, job fairs, etc., or guest alums telling how they've moved through their own careers.
Dead Poets Society Problem-SOlving Group
DPS is an informal group that gets together weekly to work on short, unusual math problems and practice explaining their solutions to each other, usually over pizza. Gatherings are a chance to share the enjoyment of mathematics in a setting outside that of required assignments and grades.
