Applied Math freshman Luke McKeogh is enjoying his first semester at SU.  He's enjoying his classes and is having a great time on the Golf Team.

Dr. Mark Branson entered this years’ annual Chili Cookoff with an interestingly named chili: Dr. Branson’s 10log(1000)cos(pi/3)squroot(9) Alarm Chili. The chili had a pungent aroma of ginger, cinnamon, and coriander before it even hit the pallet of the judge’s mouth. The pulled chicken combined with over 10 other seasonings gave this chili a strong and unique flavor. The judges must have also enjoyed this different spin on a chili, because it won the award “Most Unusual” among all 13 contestants.  Congratulations on this delicious victory!

Applied Math freshmen with their instructor, Dr. Ben Wilson, participated in and enjoyed the 2015 Lego Challenge. With music and food in the background, they depicted Career ArchitectureSM using legos. The math freshmen made a graphing calculator and put photos of each of them where the numbers would go - each depicting a number.  The graph clearly shows that as a student increases tools and experience, career opportunities also increase.  They did a great job and a good time was had by all!
