The club provides a network of students that can relate with each others' interests, thus allowing members to be available to aid each other in projects, recreation, etc.

Women in Math and Science

President: Trisha Do Thu.A.Do@live.mercer.edu
Faculty Advisor: Kathryn Kloepper

"Mercer Women In Math and Science has been established to create a way for undergraduates of math, natural science, social science, computer science, physics and engineering majors to get together and discuss career goals, network, find study partners, make new similarly-minded friends, etc. It's just a way for people who are busy to find other busy, dedicated people and talk/chill/study. Men are welcome to join, stereotyping has no place in this club. Only math, science, good company, and good conversation."
