Kappa Mu Epsilon, a national mathematics honor society designed to promote the interest of mathematics among undergraduate students, established a chapter at Francis Marion University, March 18.
The installation ceremony in the Palmetto Room of the Ervin Dining Hall was followed by a dinner.

The chapter members are selected from students of mathematics and other closely related fields who have maintained standards of scholarship, have professional merit, and have attained academic distinction.
