Recent LSUS Math Grads

It is true that the LSUS Department of Mathematics does not boast a huge number of graduates in any single year. There are many reasons for that, not least of which is the relative scarcity of mathematics majors. (The few, the proud, ...)  

That being the case, our department can boast that we do more with few. We are proud of the careers and trajectories of our graduates. The following is only a partial list of recent graduates (we're waiting to hear from more of them).

  • Laura McCormick (2011 Math): PhD student in Mathematics and Teaching Assistant at the University of South Carolina, Columbia, SC (2011).
