The Pi Mu Epsilon conference for undergraduate mathematics majors has been held at Saint John’s University in April every year since 1979. The conference features a nationally renowned speaker as well as opportunities for students to present their undergraduate research projects and to interact with other students from the region.
You are encouraged to apply for a research experience for undergraduates (REU) to enhance your education and explore your interests outside of the classroom.
