The Department of Mathematics sponsors a student chapter of the Mathematical Association of America (MAA). The MAA is the world's largest professional society that focuses on undergraduate mathematics education. The purpose of the SBU Student Chapter of the MAA is to create and support opportunities for St. Bonaventure students to enjoy and explore the world of mathematics. Our Student Chapter sponsors talks, mathematically-themed movies & pizza, Integral Day, Pi Day, and other occasions of mathematical import. For a list of types of events sponsored by our Student Chapter, scroll to the bottom of this page.
The Department of Mathematics will pay for the membership of any student who wants to be a member of the MAA, during the years that he or she attends SBU. For further details, see Becoming a Member, below.
The faculty organizers of the SBU MAA Student Chapter are Dr. Maureen Cox (Send an Email) and Dr. Chris Hill (Send an Email).
The MAA has 29 sections, which are defined by ZIP or postal code. The SBU MAA Student Chapter belongs to the Seaway Section, which includes parts of Ontario, Quebec, and New York.

The Department of Mathematics will pay for the membership of any student who wants to be a member of the MAA, during the years that he or she attends SBU. An SBU student may obtain a new or renewed membership in the MAA at our Student Chapter's annual organizational meeting, which is typically held around mid-September.
An undergraduate student's membership includes online subscriptions to the superb MAA journals Math Horizons, Mathematics Magazine, and The College Mathematics Journal, as well as an online subscription to the MAA Focus newsletter.
