Mathematics students have a wide range of options both inside and outside of the classroom, including social and academic groups and clubs. The department also recognizes students with awards for their commitment and achievements in mathematics.
The Becky Goforth Scholarship in Mathematics honors Becky Goforth, a Trinity alumna in mathematics from the class of 1995. The scholarship was established by her family and friends to provide support for four years to an entering student who demonstrates an unusual ability in mathematics and a commitment to major in that discipline. The recipient receives $1,000 annually for four years, an individual plaque, and her or his name on a commemorative plaque in the mathematics department.
