San Jacinto College students gobble up pie in celebration of pi

PASADENA, Texas - It's the tastiest time of year for the San Jacinto College (SJC) Central campus math department as March 14 approaches and the celebration of Pi Day (π=3.14) begins.

Since the international observance occurs during the SJC spring break, students were treated early this week to an assortment of pies, including coconut cream, chocolate, cherry, pecan, and key lime. Cheesecake was also on the menu, as well as a pizza pie. The event also provided students with information about free tutoring services offered at the campus' Math and Science Resource Lab.
