As any mathematician or fan of mathematics will tell you, today (3/14) is National Pi Day, but at Rice University it is also the birthday of our founder William Marsh Rice. What better way to celebrate Pi Day and a birthday than with 2,012 pies?
“It was a unique way to celebrate our founder’s birthday,” said Staff Advisory Board Co-Chair and GSCS professional development program coordinator David Frels. “In the past we’ve celebrated with cake or cupcakes, so pie was a fitting choice for celebrating both occasions.”
Happy Pi Day everyone and Happy Birthday, William Rice!
