K-State mathematics names student ambassadors for spring 2023
The mathematics department at Kansas State University has named student ambassadors for spring 2023.
The designation is given to student leaders who exemplify service and enthusiasm for mathematics and a desire to help promote the department's activities and mission. Math ambassadors are a small group of enthusiastic majors or minors who represent the department at on-campus and off-campus recruitment events.
The new ambassadors are:
Colin Williams, Marion, concurrent fifth-year bachelor's/master's in math with a minor in computer science and a graduate certificate in applied math.
"In high school, I knew I loved math after having a great calculus teacher who challenged me to think creatively and encouraged me to study math in college . . . I was eager to find out where it would take me," Williams said.
Dajarrio White, Tonganoxie, second-year mathematics major in the actuary track.
"Ever since I was young, I always had a knack for doing math," White said. "Whenever I was asked what my favorite subject was, I would typically say math!"
Carson Connard, The Woodlands, Texas, third-year mathematics major in the pregraduate track.
"I have always found a deep fascination for mathematics, and through participating in competition math during elementary through high school, I have been firm in my desires to study math as a career," Connard said.
The mathematics department helps prepare students for meaningful lives and careers that promote mathematical thinking across disciplines. Many majors on campus are only two courses from a minor in math. Volunteering as a math student ambassador is another way to promote a love for all things mathematical. Learn more.
