Tiffany Parks, a Math major at Lewis University and Joliet resident, attended the Nebraska Conference for Undergraduate Women in Mathematics Jan. 25-27 in Lincoln, Neb. The purpose of the conference was to gather women interested in pursuing advanced study and careers in the mathematical sciences.
The conference featured presentations on original research done by female mathematicians throughout the country. "I was able to speak to quite a few mathematicians and see some really interesting research projects," Parks remarked. "It made me think about if there were any research projects I would be interested in, as well as summer programs and graduate school."
It was the second year Lewis University sent students to the conference, and there are plans to send students again next year.
