    on positional weighted voting and linear algebra while studying at Appalachian Talking to and working with the faculty at Appalachian was great preparation for graduate school all my professors made time for students either to talk about classwork or just talk about math in general he said They also encouraged a number of us to go to conferences to present our undergraduate thesis work and accompanied us to these conferences which was a great opportunity to interact with the math community outside of just Appalachian Vashaw is now a graduate student at Wake Forest University completing his master s degree in mathematics I like learning and exploring new things there s always more math to discover That s what really draws me to academia he said At Wake Forest Vashaw works as a teaching assistant while completing his master s thesis in noncommutative abstract algebra He runs problem sessions tutors students one on one and proctors and grades quizzes and tests He said that enthusiastic professors at Appalachian prepared him best for graduate school I think it s easy to see math as very lifeless but I wouldn t be able to be successful in grad school if that s how I felt But taking classes where the professors actually communicated what was exciting and interesting about math really prepared me to go on to further my math education Vashaw said Vashaw advises students interested in mathematics to choose Appalachian because of the supportive faculty collaborative atmosphere and Boone itself Grad school is an incredibly collaborative environment both with respect to peers and professors and I feel like the culture of collaboration at Appalachian really prepared me for it Plus and this doesn t really have to do with academics at all Boone is a beautiful town and if you
