Math Club: The Society of Mathematics
Fall 2018: the Math Club will meet on Thursdays 3:05-4:25pm in MS 105
Suppose that a finite group has exactly n elements of order p, where p is a prime. Prove that either n=0 or p divides n+1.
We attend mathematics competitions throughout the year, and hosted the 2016 Northeast Regional Mathematics Competition.
Actuarial Science Club
The actuarial science club was created in 2011 with the purpose of exchanging information, promoting activities related to actuarial science, and unification of students interested in the career.
The purpose of this organization is to promote awareness of Actuarial Science, encourage an environment of learning and professional development, and to provide networking opportunities with businesses in the local community for CCSU students.

Women in STEM Club and AWM Chapter
The goal of the Women in STEM Club is to support and increase awareness of women STEM-majors at CCSU, and more broadly the women working in STEM careers. Since women tend to be a minority in STEM fields, we want the club to find ways to welcome more young women into the field.
We are also starting an Association for Women in Mathematics chapter here at CCSU, as a part of the club. The purpose of the AWM chapter is to support and recognize women in math. We welcome and encourage participation in both the club and the AWM chapter from all genders and majors who are interested in supporting/promoting the work of women in STEM fields.

The Graduate Math Society
The Graduate Math Society conducts several very interesting functions per year including fascinating presentations by superb speakers who are exceptional leaders in the fields of mathematics education, robotics, political concerns about the form of mathematics education and its assessment in the immediate future. Each year graduate students who have completed their Capstone requirement, along with a guest, are treated to a wonderful award dinner at the University.
For information, contact Dr. Philip Halloran
The CCSU Chess Club
The purpose of the Chess Club shall be to promote the interest of chess on and off campus; to further develop the knowledge of the game's basic fundamentals, tactics, and strategies, and to encourage intellectual stimulation.
All skill levels are welcome.
We meet every Thursday night from 6:30-8:30pm in Devil's Den, in the Student Center.
