Kappa Mu Epsilon, a national mathematics interest organization, inducted eight Westminster College students at the annual Mathematics and Computer Science Department Spring banquet held recently in the McKelvey Campus Center.
Kappa Mu Epsilon is designed to further interest in mathematics in schools that place their primary emphasis on undergraduate programs. Requirements include at least a 3.0 grade point average out of a possible 4.0, and current enrollment in a mathematics class. The purpose for this organization includes: aiding undergraduates in understanding the important role mathematics has played in the development of Western civilization; providing a society to recognize the outstanding achievement in mathematics study at the undergraduate level; spreading the knowledge of mathematics; and familiarizing members with the advances being made in mathematics.
