One 137 students from five states and 14 colleges and universities competed in the University of North Georgia’s 24th Annual Mathematics tournament on Saturday, April 7, 2018, on the Gainesville campus.
Middle Georgia State University placed second among 37 competing teams in the afternoon team competition and fourth overall for the tournament.
Competing students from Middle Georgia State University were Wade Lee, Shani Edmond, Tevin Fudge, John Verboom, Benedict Tong, Gabriel Loos, Ryota Tsutsumi, Marquis Brown, and Jahbari Wallace.
The picture of Spring Break perpetuated by pop culture is one of partying on the beach. Yet, what we are increasingly witnessing at Middle Georgia State University each year is something quite different. While many of us take a deserved moment to recharge and relax—on or off the beach—during the break from classes, many of our students and faculty also take the opportunity to engage beyond the classroom.
This year, our students and faculty interacted with communities and colleagues both at home and abroad. Residence Life once again offered Alternative Spring Break, this year taking a group of students to Texas, where they volunteered with the largest food bank in the nation, the Houston Food Bank.
