For most of the year, celebrating math is unheard of. However, once a year, a very special day rolls around when the math lovers of the world get to unashamedly express themselves. March 14, better known as Pi day, is annually celebrated in schools for being the one day a year that spells out the infinite number of Pi (π or 3.14…). 

To observe this holiday, two organizations; Student Nurses Association (SNA) and Students for H.O.P.E. collaborated on Pi day in Alumni Hall at 6 p.m. to take the opportunity for students to have a break during the Spring semester with a savory and artsy mental health night. 

The co-hosts provided both pizza pies and dessert pies for a play on the holiday name. While students snacked and mingled, they were also offered a chance to pick out a canvas tote bag and some paints for a fun and relaxing activity. 

Many totes were labeled with positive affirmations, flowers, strawberries, and an array of art. All the attending students left with a full stomach and a souvenir of their brief escape from studying. 

“As college students, we get caught up in our busy lives and forget to take time for ourselves. Today we wanted to give students that opportunity,” said Raea Concepcion sophomore nursing student and SNA secretary.
