# Pi Mu Epsilon Society

New Jersey Zeta Chapter of Pi Mu Epsilon,

the National Honorary Mathematics Society

**Pi Mu Epsilon** is a national mathematics honor society. It was founded at Syracuse University and incorporated at Albany, New York on May 25, 1914. The purpose of Pi Mu Epsilon is the promotion and recognition of mathematical scholarship among students in postsecondary institutions. It aims to do this by electing members on an honorary basis according to their proficiency in mathematics and by engaging in activities designed to promote the mathematical and scholarly development of its members.

Pi Mu Epsilon is an academic society consisting of chapters located throughout the United States. Chapters of Pi Mu Epsilon may be chartered only at academic institutions whose standards are excellent in all the liberal arts and particularly so in mathematics. A careful probing investigation is made before a charter is granted to an institution.

Criteria for candidacy to the New Jersey Zeta Chapter at the Fairleigh Dickinson University Florham-Madison Campus are as follows:

• Must have completed at least three upper level mathematics courses

• At least a 3.5 overall GPA with 95 credits or more and at least a 3.0 GPA in mathematics

• Or at least a 3.7 overall GPA with 65 – 94 credits and at least a 3.0 GPA in the mathematics major

• Or at least a 3.2 overall GPA with 95 credits or more and at least a 3.6 GPA in the mathematics major

• Department faculty recommendation

To be chosen a member of Pi Mu Epsilon is a very high honor.
