We publish the Mathematics Alumni Newsletter twice a year. Contributions are welcome and can be submitted to Liane Beights.
Current and past newsletters can be found here.
When classes are in session, we meet in the basement of Aspen Central every Friday at 3 p.m. for a departmental tea. Everybody is welcome. Refreshments are served.
Although we sometimes end up talking about mathematics, the tea is usually a good opportunity to have an informal chat with the students, faculty, staff and guests.
