Kappa Mu Epsilon

Hillsdale College


The mission of Kappa Mu Epsilon is to help undergraduate students realize the important role that mathematics has played in the development of civilization, while also developing an appreciation of the power and beauty possessed by mathematics, due mainly, to its demand for logical and rigorous modes of thought.


Founded in 1931, Kappa Mu Epsilon is a national mathematics honor society for undergraduates. Kappa Mu Epsilon seeks to further the interests of mathematics and help undergraduates and society at large understand the importance and beauty of mathematics.

Membership allows one to connect more closely with mathematics peers and professors, and grants free online access to The Pentagon (a mathematics magazine).  Each semester, KME holds two mathematics events, including special lectures, game nights, movie nights, and more.  And upon graduation, all members are entitled to KME’s honorary cord.

Membership Requirements

Membership in the Michigan Delta Chapter of Kappa Mu Epsilon is restricted to students who have completed three semesters of college mathematics at the level of calculus or higher, with at least one math course must be taken at Hillsdale College. Students must have achieved at least a “B” average in all college mathematics courses, and are ranked in the top 35 percent of their class.
