Founded in 1914 at Syracuse University, the purpose of PME is the promotion of scholarly activity in mathematics among the students in academic institutions. This honor society currently has over 300 chapters at colleges and universities throughout the United States. The Muhlenberg College chapter was granted a charter from the national organization in 2003. Selection to Pi Mu Epsilon is based on national standards and represents the most outstanding achievement in the mathematical sciences.
Aside from the honor itself, membership includes several benefits. Among these are a subscription to the Pi Mu Epsilon Journal, which is devoted to topics in mathematics accessible to undergraduate students, and access to travel funds for conferences.

Muhlenberg College hosts an Annual High School Mathematics Competition every February. Teams of three students from Lehigh Valley area high schools come to campus to compete against each other. Prizes are awarded to both the department and students from the winning and runner-up teams. A commemorative tee-shirt is given to each participating high school student. Muhlenberg College Math Club members volunteer to work the contest.
Three Contest Components:
- Rapid responses to Short-Answer Questions
- Written responses to longer Open-Ended Problems
- Math Games
