Why Should Somebody Study Mathematics at UMW?

Math was definitely a challenging major, but the professors and students made it a feasible accomplishment and an enjoyable journey.  The staff is personable and encouraging.  It was not unusual for me to push for extra office hours or visit the same professor five times a week.  The professors in the math department care about the students, are knowledgeable, and provide a rich environment for learning.  Similarly, the small size of the classes meant that you know *every* math major and could count on them to provide similar support.  Never have I wished for a different major or a better department.
