In addition to Vice President Sellars, officers are President Janet Brock of Bainbridge and Treasurer Lee Anne Sheffield of Colquitt, who are charter members.

Chapter adviser Mary Glenn Grimes, associate professor of mathematics in the Arts and Sciences Division, and co-adviser Elwanda Coston, assistant professor of mathematics in the Learning Support Division, have worked with the chapter officers, members and BC math faculty to provide a Math Tutor Blitz on campus before final exams each semester.

Treasurer Sheffield did major planning and shopping for supplies for the April 19 blitz and for the fall 2009 event. Students who took advantage of the free service expressed great appreciation for the help, and two students who participated won scientific calculators in a drawing.

Students invited to join Mu Alpha Theta have demonstrated exemplary academic achievement, having earned credit in at least one course at or above the College Algebra/Pre-Calculus level, maintaining a 3.5 grade point average (GPA) in all college mathematics courses with the prefix MATH and a number 1000 or higher, and having a 3.3 cumulative college GPA.
