Membership is open to mathematics majors and minors who maintain a 3.0 GPA in their major and 2.75 GPA overall. Members must attend 75% of all meetings and pay dues. Meetings are held once a month on Monday evenings.

 

The club celebrates Pi day every year and has chosen various ways of doing this, including a Pie Bake-Off, a Pie-in-the-Face fundraiser, and Moon-Pie give away.

 

The club has enjoyed speakers on various topics in mathematics, graduate schools, and careers in mathematics. Meetings have also included mathematical scavenger hunts, Sudoku tournaments, games, and Thanksgiving and Valentines parties. The club has at least one service project each year which have included Valentine cards for hospitalized children, canned food drives, and Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.
