The day-long event, organized by BeMyApp, asked teams to create a functional app for Shell Oil Company. This was the team’s first hackathon experience, so their success was especially exciting. For more details, see *The Collegian*‘s report on this story, or the team’s webpage.

In the upcoming fall semester, Erica will begin a Ph.D. program in mathematics at the University of Nebraska. Congratulations, Erica — we’re very proud of your accomplishments!

Students and faculty from Math, Physics, and 3+2 Engineering celebrated their favorite transcendental number while enjoying a piece of pie and solving pi-themed puzzles on the chapel lawn.

But the highlight of the day was, of course, the pi(e)ing of professors!

Happy Pi Day from the Math Department!
