The Mathematics and Computer Science Department hosted an annual workshop known as the "First-year Orientation Program" for incoming mathematics and computer science majors on September 17, 2013 In Hoyt 165.
During this time, first-year students met over lunch with departmental faculty members and with upper-class mathematics and computer science majors. The workshop also included a problem-solving contest with prizes.
The program was developed several years ago as a way to give new students a quick and informal introduction to each other and to other members of the department.
Dr. David Offner, assistant professor of mathematics, and Mr. James Anthony, visiting lecturer of mathematics, organized this year's program. Other faculty members in attendance were Dr. John Bonomo, associate professor of computer science; Dr. Natacha Fontes-Merz, associate professor of mathematics; Dr. Terri Lenox, professor of computer science and department chair; and Dr. David Shaffer, associate professor of computer science.
