"My experience with the Mathematics program here at Andrews was immensely positive. . .   I never felt belittled or neglected by anyone in the department. The faculty helped feed my desire for knowledge and opened my mind to new mathematics and new ways of thinking. For example, learning proofs indirectly helped to develop my rhetorical critical-thinking skills. The math classes I took here at Andrews opened my eyes to a new world of things I can do or accomplish by simply using my head, and I truly feel like the sky is the limit. So as I move on to the next stages in my life, I am excited because I feel prepared, not because I feel I have accumulated sufficient knowledge for success, but because I am prepared to learn new things and solve new problems no one has faced before." -Recent mathematics graduate
