Campus celebrates Pi(e) Day

The Pittsburg State University Chemistry Club observed Pi Day, Wednesday, by adding an e and raising money for a good cause. For a fee, students could hit their favorite professors with cream pies and the money raised will help provide clean water in underdeveloped parts of the world.

The Pittsburg State University Chemistry Club observe Pi Day, Wednesday, by adding an e and raising money for a good cause.

Pi Day is a celebration of the never-ending number, Pi (3.14159...), and is observed each March 14th because the date can be written 3/14.

The PSU chemistry students added an e to the equation and lined up some good-natured faculty members to raise money for the UNICEF Tap Project, which works towards providing clean water to people around the world. For a dollar, students were given the opportunity to hit their favorite professors in the face with a whipped cream pie.

Organizers said it was a good way to have some fun, raise some money and enjoy unusually good spring weather on the campus Oval.
