Last week the Math and Stat Department hosted an event to welcome our new freshman and, since they weren't on campus last year, our sophomores as well. It was an opportunity to meet fellow math and stat majors and chat informally with some of the faculty. Our Department Chair, Prof. Tingley, gave a brief introduction to the department, as well as the techniques and mathematics behind juggling. Welcome to all our new majors!
