Pi Mu Epsilon, Inc (PME), is the Honorary National Mathematics Society. It was founded on May 25, 1914 at Syracuse University and currently has over 300 chapters at colleges and universities throughout the United States. The purpose of PME is the promotion of scholarly activity in mathematics among the students in academic institutions. An initiation ceremony is slated twice a year.

Each first Saturday of December, the MAA holds the Putnam Mathematical Competition for regularly enrolled undergraduates in colleges and universities of the United States and Canada. There are two ways for Marquette undergraduates to register.
One way: Before the end of September, prospective students contact the Math office at Cudahy Hall room 340 to find out which faculty member is the designated Marquette Putnam Representative. Then contact this MPR for final registration information.
Other way: Register for fall 1-credit course MATH 3977.
For past performances by Marquette students, see the Putnam file.
ACM, the Association for Computing Machinery, is an international scientific and educational organization dedicated to advancing the arts, sciences, and applications of information technology. Marquette's Chapter of the Student Association for Computing Machinery was re-founded in the fall 2008 semester by merging two other computer oriented student organizations: Marquette University Linux Users Group (MULUG) and Computer Science Club. This merger allows for more frequent events, a greater diversity of topics, and a strong membership base.
The ongoing student activities include:
Every year, the ACM hosts the International Collegiate Programming Contest with teams from across the world attempting to solve 8-10 programming problems in 5 hours. The MSCS department organizes teams from Marquette to compete in the ICPC. For more information, see ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest.
There is a special interest group for CUDA and GPGPU technologies (hence SIGGPU). For more information, contact Heather Bort.
Upsilon Pi Epsilon (UPE) was first organized at Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas, in 1967. The international organization now consists of chapters in various colleges and universities in North America and overseas. The mission of UPE is to recognize academic excellence at both the undergraduate and graduate levels in the Computing and Information Disciplines. UPE has received endorsements from the two largest professional computing organizations in the world, the Association for Computing Machinery(ACM) and the IEEE Computer Society (IEEE-CS).
The Marquette chapter of UPE was chartered in 2001, and inducts qualified students from the computer science and computer engineering majors.
