A message from Math Club President, Rene Haskins:
"I am a double major in mathematics and computer science, however, mathematics is the long-standing love of mine between the two. I've had a love affair with math as far as I can remember, and with this fueling my passion for this organization, I truly enjoy being a critical part in the success of the Math Club and look forward to continuing my efforts.
I will make a strong president for the Math Club through my enthusiasm for math and the commitment I have shown to this organization. I know the plans the executive board has for this club, and I want to help the future of the Math Club continue to look bright. I would love to get more students aware of and excited about different types of mathematics during my time as president, as well as serve the students already excited about mathematics."
