"Our SIAM student chapter has been officially accepted by SIAM. With the help of our Faculty Advisor, Nathan Gibson, our chapter’s stated goal is to further the application of mathematics to industry and science. By promoting research, techniques and methods in mathematics our chapter hopes to strengthening developments with industry and the broader scientific community. Currently we are planning to host a social event at the end of the year. Also, we are organizing a student research poster contest, complete with cash prizes, to coincide with the annual Lonsenth lecture. The officers are president Ryan Hass, vice-president Carrie Manroe, treasurer Viviane Klein, and secretary Kyle Hickmann. We wish all students in applied mathematics to join us at our next meeting on February 11th."
