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.

"There are lots of open doors for nurses with four-year degrees. With a two-year degree you're pretty much going to be a staff nurse on a hospital floor, but with a four-year degree you can be a charge nurse, a traveling nurse, a flight nurse on a helicopter, or a pharmaceutical representative."
