The National Pi Mu Epsilon Math Honor Society to hold initiation, installation
Utica, NY (03/03/2014)- The National Pi Mu Epsilon Math Honor Society will hold an initiation and installation ceremony for a new chapter at Utica College on Friday, March 7 at 5 p.m.
Five UC students will be inducted into the society: Willarm Darman, Jeremy Dyer, Hannah Johnson, Steve Oliveira and Richard Paulsen.
To be inducted, the students met several criteria. They must have completed at least the equivalent of two semesters of calculus and two additional mathematics at or above the calculus level, which leads to the fulfillment of a major in mathematics. They must also maintain a grade point average of 3.0 or higher in all mathematics courses, and a 3.0 or higher in all of their undergraduate courses.
The ceremony will feature installing officer Brigitte Servatius, professor of mathematical sciences at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. It will be held in Willard Conference Room in DePerno Hall at UC. Family and friends of inductees are invited to attend.

"I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College." "As a returning adult student, I felt the program was perfect. The class size was small allowing for individual attention when I needed it. I always felt known and accepted as an individual, not just a number among many. The professors were encouraging and helpful in many areas, not just academics. They took a personal interest in us as people, not just students. When I had a difficult time, my professors gave me the extra little push that I needed to continue. I can honestly say, that I am a better person for having received my education from Utica College. Today I teach high school mathematics and also a course at HCCC. The education I received at Utica College has prepared me well for my position teaching the higher math courses in high school. Returning to college to obtain my Bachelor Degree in mathematics was the one of the best decision I ever made. Choosing Utica College made that decision even better."
