Math concentrators are invited to come celebrate the end of the term on Wednesday, April 20 in Goldsmith 100. There will be food (of course!) and a chance to mingle with other majors and math faculty. We will have a discussion about your experiences in the Mathematics Department. The party will be preceded by the first of our Directed Reading Program Presentations; see below for details.
Directed Reading Program Presentations
The Directed Reading Program (DRP) is an independent study program pairing undergraduate students with graduate student mentors to undertake projects of various sizes and scopes over the course of a semester. The undergraduate participants will present their projects on several dates; everyone is welcome to attend! The first presentation on Wednesday, April 20 will be followed by a party and discussion in Goldsmith 100.

PAST DEPT EVENTS
Summer Prep Camp
The inaugural Summer Math Prep Camp was held August 17--August 26, 2015. This workshop is run by the graduate representatives, to help incoming graduate students with the transition to grad school. Advanced graduate students teach refresher courses in analysis, algebra, and topology, while faculty give introductory research talks. See the calendar for the schedule of events.
