Celebrating Mathematics, Easy As Pi
Flexing their mathematical muscles, 51 students took part in the celebration of Pi Day by competing in a "Pi-athlon" hosted by the mathematics, computer science and statistics department. Officially, Pi Day is March 14 (3.14), which fell during the University's spring break. So, while the St. Lawrence event was held a few days late, the approximately 150 pieces of pie served throughout the day helped to assuage any feelings of guilt due to tardiness.
