S.I.G.M.A. stands for "Social / Intellectual Graduate Mathematics Activities".
The most common activities organized by Sigma are:
- The weekly Sigma Seminar.
- Dinner and a Movie, usually the first Thursday of the month. A voting ballot
to choose which movie we will watch appears about a week beforehand in the graduate student
mail room, where there will also be a sign-up sheet to indicate who would like to bring what
types of food.
- The Halloween Party: this is organized around October 31st (not the biggest
surprise!) and you'll receive an e-mail in your departmental account a few weeks beforehand.
