Van Rie + Trine Thunder athletics = A good day!
B.S. Indiana University; M.A. Indiana University; Ph.D. Bowling Green State University
I have been a professor of mathematics at Trine University since 1991. I am the academic adviser for all mathematics and mathematics education majors at Trine. Since 2002 I have served as the faculty athletics representative at Trine.
I worked as a computer programmer and systems analyst for over six years before returning to graduate school to work on my Ph.D.
I enjoy working with students and my colleagues at Trine. It is a pleasure to get to know the students and to watch them grow in their degree programs and then to see them walk across the stage on commencement day to receive their well–earned degrees.
I also enjoy attending extra–curricular events such as plays, concerts and athletic events.
