Bryan Haverstock has an almost-free ride for graduate work in mathematics at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. All of us professors are kicking ourselves for not thinking of that when we chose our grad schools!
Tyler Nadeau has scored a full-time substitute job starting May 12, 2014, and he’s speaking at the Michigan Council of Teachers of Mathematics Conference with Professor Ciganik this summer. We hope all his attention to the professional side of teaching gets him a good position for next year.
Marissa Saladin has a free ride for chemistry graduate work at Penn State. Yes, she was a chemistry/math dual major. But her heart belongs to chemistry, so no surprise at her choice.
We forged a new connection with the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana, where four of our students have been published. Three of our students attended the annual undergraduate math conference in April 2014 and had a great time. Math majors Jackie Gipe and Noah Davis gave talks. Since we always have a few student researchers, the department hopes the RHIT conference becomes an annual venue for their presentations.
