May graduate receives 2016 Honors Academic Excellence Award
May graduate Rachel Domagalski received the Academic Excellence Award which is the highest academic honor granted from CMU’s Honors Program. This award is given to a graduating senior annually in recognition of exceptional academic success and commitment to scholarship while at CMU.
Domagalski, a Clarkston native, graduated with a 3.97 GPA with a major in mathematics and a concentration in pure mathematics. During her undergraduate career, she completed two separate summer research experience for undergraduates programs. The second program, in 2015, was hosted by the University of Hawaii at Hilo where she characterized the catenary degree of numerical monoids generated by a generalized arithmetic sequence of embedding dimensions in three.
Pieces of Domagalski’s research have been presented at symposiums and conferences in Michigan, Nebraska, Texas, Seattle, and Washington, D.C. Her work also has been published in conference proceedings with a co-authored manuscript also currently under review for publication.
