Celebrate Pi Day with University Libraries

Do you like Pi?

Pi is celebrated globally on March 14. This date was chosen because it represents the first three digits of Pi (3.14). Pi is a Greek symbol which represents a constant– the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, or 3.14159. Pi can be calculated beyond a million digits without repeating itself and has no predicable pattern.

To celebrate Pi and its importance for science and math, Hardin, along with the Main, Art, Business, Engineering, and Sciences Libraries on campus will be handing out free pies along with coffee and lemonade. This event will take place on Friday, March 14 at 10 am. Get yours while supplies last!
