May 28 Day 81: Celebrations Both Belated and Virtual

Tonight we celebrated the achievements of the University of Washington Tacoma mathematics majors. It was a multimedia zoom extravaganza with the faculty leaning in to make it extra special. Just look at the program:

There was something for everyone—special videos, Pi Mu Epsilon honor society induction, singing (!?!) , awards, and math(ish) trivia.

Award medallion shape was selected to commemorate the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.

My favorite premiere of the evening was the Belated Pi Day Celebration. Senior and Math Club president, Madison Phelps, put it together from snippets and recordings sent from faculty in isolation and previous year’s celebrations. I love the creativity and enthusiasm from my colleagues. And the recorded laughter of small children. Yes that is a very precious commodity. It’s worth your time. I promise.
