Gannon University Students Celebrate Pi Day With a Party!

Posted: March 13, 2015

At some infinitely small instant between 9:26 and 9:27 on Saturday, the month, day, year, and time will be exactly 3.141592653 the number known as pi.

The hyper-rational Math Club at Gannon University says, "You don't want to let this momentous occasion pass you buy without a party!" So that's what they are planning.

Gannon's Pi Day party will take place at 8 p.m. on Saturday in the University's Zurn Science Center, 143 W. 7th St., and will feature pizza (naturally), a pi-themed movie, what David Prier assistant professor of mathematics, described as "plenty of mathy games" and, the hope is, actual pies, which attendees are encouraged to bring.

The public is invited. After all, this is an occasion that occurs only twice.
