Campus celebrates Pi(e) Day

Hannah Meyers, a nursing student from Shawnee, Kan., scores a direct hit on Dr. Phillip Harries, biology.

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.
