Mathematics and Art
In Perfect Harmony

Math research +
artwork equal
liberal arts success

The spotlight will shine on Amanda Owens’ accomplishments in both her majors — Art and Mathematics — in January at the 2015 Joint Mathematics Meetings in San Antonio. 


The senior from Doylestown, Pa., will exhibit two paintings and present a paper from her summer mathematics research at the conference attended by some 7,000 people annually.  


Mathematics and art? If it sounds like an unlikely combination, think again. Owens and her two mentors, Mathematics professor Spencer Hamblen and Art professor Steve Pearson, say the two seemingly diverse disciplines exist in perfect harmony. Read her story »

Burkina Faso native will research historic election

Raymond Boly spent the first 14 years of his life in the West African nation of Burkina Faso. Next summer, thanks to a travel award from Royal Air Maroc/African Studies Association, the junior Political Science and International Studies major will return to study the first presidential election there in 27 years. His professors nominated him for the award.


Boly, whose family now lives in Rockville, Md., plans to spend at least three weeks traveling throughout the country — about the size of Colorado with a population of 17 million — observing candidates and campaigns in action prior to the November election. He says, “The military is now in charge, and we’re all hoping they oversee peaceful and fair elections.”
