The Mathematics Club at Clarkson University is an organization open to all undergraduate or graduate students enrolled at Clarkson University, not just students majoring in mathematics. Our main focus is to bring together students who share an interest in math to learn from each other, and from professionals in math-related fields. The club is especially useful for incoming freshmen and becoming a member at an early stage. All members of PME, SIAM and AWM are automatically part of the Math Club! We hope to be able to organize weekly activities, including: ABC exam help session, movie night, PUTNAM exam prep, problem solving, Trivia night, halloween party, Pi Day, Dessert Reception, Grad Panel, Career Panel, Study Tips and Tricks,  etc.  


The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) encourages women and girls to study and to have active careers in the mathematical sciences, and to promote equal opportunity and the equal treatment of women and girls in the mathematical sciences. As a member of AWM, you will receive free registrations for AWM conferences, possible travel grants to attend conferences and join AWM Clarkson Chapter for free. Note that the membership is NOT restricted to women; everyone can and is encouraged to join!

 Pi Mu Epsilon (PME) is a national honorary society that promotes and recognizes mathematical excellence. The Clarkson University chapter is New York Omicron (yeah, the name is special to us nowadays), chartered in 1965.  With membership open to qualified students from all majors, this is one of Clarkson's most diversified honor societies. The requirements to become a member of Pi Mu Epsilon New York Omicron Chapter include being a full-time student, having completed (or in-progress) at least two years of college-level mathematics courses with various GPA requirements in mathematics courses and overall courses depending on students’ academic status. Activities of Pi Mu Epsilon depend on the interests of the members; in the past these have included sponsoring talks about mathematical careers and graduate school preparation, participating in open house events, and organizing social/recreational events. Such activities are often developed together with the other math organizations on campus (AWM and SIAM), and are open to all interested students, not just members.

Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is an international community of over 14,000 individual members. Almost 500 academic, manufacturing, research and development, service and consulting organizations, government, and military organizations worldwide are institutional members. SIAM was incorporated in 1952 as a nonprofit organization to convey useful mathematical knowledge to other professionals who could implement mathematical theory for practical, industrial, or scientific use. Since then, SIAM’s goals have remained the same. SIAM fosters the development of applied mathematical and computational methodologies needed in various application areas. Applied mathematics, in partnership with computational science, is essential in solving many real-world problems. Through publications, research and community, the mission of SIAM is to build cooperation between mathematics and the worlds of science and technology.
