On April 6, six Arcadia University students presented research at the Mathematical Association of America (MAA) regional meeting at Dickinson College. The participants—Elizabeth Wolf, Lauren Ellenberg, Zachary Baker, Rommy Marquez, Stefanie Jamerson and Harrison Stoll—became the first Arcadia students to ever give presentations at a regional MAA conference. “They truly did a wonderful job representing us,” said Dr. Ned Wolff, Professor of Mathematics.
Dr. Steve Michael, Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, was thrilled by the news. “As the Provost of the University, there is nothing that brings me more joy than to see a concrete fruit of student-faculty relationship and a palpable and visible demonstration of our personal attention. It is a big deal in academia for students to have opportunities to present at academic conferences along with their faculty.” The Provost concluded with a message specifically for the six student presenters: “Congratulations to our math students and the faculty.”
