Wilson's Alpha Delta Theta Club (ADT) is busy this semester raising money and dividing square roots in the hopes of promoting math here at Wilson.

Getting the Campus Involved

ADT hosts these fundraisers to generate interest in the subject of math among Wilson's students.

Each week ADT sends out Sudoku and a Question of the Week via campus e-mail. Students race to be the first to answer correctly to win prizes from Taco Bell, Dominos and other sponsors.

Putting the Funds to Good Use

ADT club worked hard to receive a travel grant that enabled them to go to the Shenandoah Undergraduate Mathematics and Statistics Conference in October. Members engaged in discussions and watched their peers' presentations.

ADT's Plans for the Future

Natalya Yashina, ADT club's president, looks forward to the future of ADT Club based on its rising success and she has big plans for next year.

"In the future ADT is hoping to establish a connection with a local high school and have Question of the Week activity there as well. And, of course, ADT members are planning to receive more training through conferences and seminars. We are planning on participating in SUMS conference either as speakers or poster presenters next year," says Yashina.
