### Welcome to THE MATADOR MATH SOCIETY!

Our club serves as a community for mathematics undergrads and grad students, and it also serves the purpose of creating synergetic networking between math and non-math CSUN students. To stay informed and to hear about upcoming events, make sure that you're subscribed to one of the math department's listservs. If you're not, then our Facebook page should be an effective substitute.Or contact one of the club officers, listed below, for more information. Thank you for your interest in the MMS!
