The Mathematics and Physics Department wished warm congratulations to our six applied math graduates at the May Commencement. Students and faculty gathered right before the ceremony for a departmental graduation picture. Faculty wished students well, in the words of Gabrielle Giffords, House of Representatives, Arizona:

"Be bold, be courageous, be your best."

Best wishes- we'll miss you!

Applied Math senior, Jess Rega, and Applied Math junior, Alayna Roesener, worked with math faculty member, Dr. Ben Wilson, on a project analyzing statistics of SU's baseball team from the 2017-2018 season.  Jess chose to study the offensive stats while Alayna focused on the pitching stats.  Since both students are athletes, they loved applying their mathematical knowledge to better understand sports.  They presented their findings at the Spring School of the Sciences Poster Session.  They are shown here (Jess in top photo) with Dr. Wilson.
