Pi(e) a prof Wednesday
The PSU Chemistry Club will observe Pi Day, Wednesday, March 14, with a little fun for a good cause. Beginning around 8:30 a.m., anyone on campus can "pie" their favorite prof at a booth on the Oval for just $1. Funds raised will go to the UNICEF Tap Project, which works towards providing clean water to people around the world. The good-natured targets include Dr. Howard Smith, College of Education; Dr. Jean Dockers, College of Education; Dr. Craig Fuchs, Honors College/Music; Dr. Khamis Siam, Chemistry; Dr. Irene Zegar, Chemistry; Dr. Kris Mijares, Chemistry; Dr. Arvin Cruz, Chemistry; Dr. Phillip Harries; Biology, and Dr. Daniel Zurek; Biology. The fun lasts until the pies or professors run out.
Pi Day celebrates mathematicians' favorite number, Pi. This never ending number (3.14159....) has been celebrated on March 14 (3/14) since the 1980s and it gives mathematicians an opportunity to prove that they really do have a sense of humor.
