SUMS is the best way for you to indulge in a little bit of maths and make some friends along the way!
As the name suggests, the St Andrews University Mathematics Society (SUMS for short) is primarily concerned with establishing a community of people interested in maths! To do this, SUMS runs a number of regular events, including:
* Lunchtime lectures: Fascinating talks in which distinguished lecturers and guests give a look into their research area or an underappreciated part of maths that more people should know about!
* Maths JAMS: These are cozy board game nights where people are encouraged to nerd out about maths to the fullest extent. We also sometimes bring our own problems.
* Pub socials A number of larger events also get organized throughout the year such as:
* Student-Staff Charity Quiz: Three teams of lecturers from each of the departments and teams of undergraduates are pitted against each other in an exciting game show style battle of wits – all for charity!
* Maths competitions: Last year we organised the very first Scottish University Maths Olympiad (SUMO), bringing in over 20 teams from 5 different universities to compete against each other in a fun team maths competition.
All this for the low membership cost of £3!

We are here solely for students of the University of St Andrews. We exist to make the student experience as strong as it can be, to provide services for students, and to represent student views to the University and beyond. We are a charity registered in Scotland and we are mostly volunteers, from members of the SRC and SSC to Ents Crew, all the society committee members to the Trustees of our Board.
