Radical Pi Math Club
Radical Pi is a math club for students at The Ohio State University. Radical Pi was created to unite college students with a strong interest in math. It gives them a chance to talk about math beyond schoolwork, and find out about new topics in math from the faculty and each other. See the Radical Pi website for their upcoming activities.
Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM)
An local chapter of SIAM has formed on the OSU campus with the purpose to support the interest, research, graduate study, and overall understanding of mathematics in “real-world situations”.
This group will have opportunities to:
- hear guest speakers
- organize group projects for competitions
- tour industrial companies
- meet employers in the field
- attend annual conferences
- and even have the possibility of presenting at a conference.
The group is working hard to meet the needs of all math majors/tracks within the department and this nationally recognized organization is a great way to see the larger picture behind applied mathematics while also networking for your career or academic future. While the group is being initiated in the Department of Mathematics, the point is to make cross-disciplinary connections with other majors, students, and faculty.
Women in Math & Science Club
"Women in Math & Science Club" was created to serve two purposes. The first goal of the group is to provide support and encouragement to women who have decided to pursue a career in math and/or science. The second goal is to do outreach to area middle-school aged children to encourage girls and boys to consider studying a science when they get to college and to demonstrate that a wide variety of people are qualified to do science.
Actuarial Club at Ohio State
The goal of the Actuarial Club of Ohio State (ACOS) is to inform students about the actuarial profession and to further the goals of those students who are interested in pursuing a career as an actuary. In addition, ACOS will also help students with the professional actuarial exams.
See Actuarial Club at Ohio State for upcoming events and meetings.
Columbus Math Circle
The Columbus Math Circle is intended for high school and middle school students who enjoy thinking about mathematical ideas, problems, and puzzles. We hope to get students involved in investigating some mathematical questions, talking about their ideas, coming up with guesses and suggestions, and arriving at answers and explanations.
Meetings will be held every few weeks, on Sundays, usually 2:00 - 4:00 PM, in room 232 of Cockins Hall. See their website for upcoming meetings.
Math Grad Student Association (MGSA)
The MGSA provides graduate students in the Department of Mathematics the opportunity to interact with each other and present their work to the members and other interested students as well as provide support and encouragement to all mathematics graduate students.
The MGSA's Math Grad Student Seminar is typically held every other Tuesday at 5:00pm in 240 Cockins Hall. All OSU graduate and undergraduate students are welcome.
For more information and seminar schedules please visit the MGSA website at https://org.osu.edu/mgsa/.
Math to Industry
What can I do with a mathematics degree? How do I find a job given my math background? What types of corporations hire mathematicians? We are creating a Math to Industry seminar to empower students to use their mathematics degree to land rewarding jobs. In this seminar, you will learn about the transition from the university to the job market from mathematicians working at corporations such as Target, Nordstrom, Google, and more. The invited speakers will…
- share the skills that are in demand (coding, research experience, internships possibilities, etc.)
- converse about their path from student of mathematics to corporate mathematician
- discuss how they use math in their jobs
- talk about work life balance and making your passion into your job
Visit Math to Industry for more information about the seminar and events.
Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM), OSU Chapter
This group is open to both female and male graduate and undergraduate students. Activities include meetings with speakers and opportunities to learn about navigating careers and career transitions in mathematics. Contact Isabel Pena (organizer) or Barbara Keyfitz (faculty advisor) for more information.
