What a great O-Week to start the semester! Thank you to all the volunteers that have made running this week possible. We would also like to congratulate the MathSoc Integration Bee Winner Johnny Lim and runner-up Cameron Eggins.
Our Meet the Directors BBQ begins next Thursday (1/3/18) at Chancellors Lawn 12-3pm! More information out soon.
The last message is for the legend to the Mathematics community, Professor Mansfield. He has entered a career research competition and is asking for our help. Please stop by www.thinkable.org/submission_entries/68nxrvqm to watch his submission and vote! ... See MoreSee Less

According to all known laws of aviation,
there is no way a bee should be able to fly.
Its wings are too small to get
its fat little body off the ground.
The bee, of course, flies anyway
Because bees don't care what humans think is impossible.
Yellow, black. Yellow, black.
Yellow, black. Yellow, black.
Ooh, black and yellow!
Let's shake it up a little.
