Our Annual Math Retreat
At the beginning of each Fall Semester, our Department has its Math in the Woods! held at Lake Wissota State Park.
A main goal of the event is to build community. Not only are students and faculty invited but also emeritus faculty, staff members and all friends and family. The activities include lawn games like frisbee and bean bag toss, hikes in the woods, student/professor math mingling on research topics, a grill out, math talks, and an overnight campout. This year a great time was had by everyone.
Bring your homework if you want. Portable white boards are full of math by the end of the evening!
