1. Are you interested in summer research in mathematics?  The National Science Foundation sponsors REUs---research experiences for undergraduates.  For a list of possibilities in the mathematical sciences, see here.

2.  The American Mathematical Society is the primary organization for researchers in pure mathematics.  Here is their webpage for undergraduates, listing many opportunities, information on careers, information on graduate programs, etc.

3.  The Mathematical Association of America is an organization concerned with scholarship, teaching and learning in mathematics.  Here is their
webpage for undergraduates. It includes setions on meetings, jobs and career options, summer opportunties, and student chapters.  They also put out a magazine directed at undergraduates:  Math Horizons.  The math department has copies, so if you are interested in getting an issue, please let me know.

The Association for Women in Mathematics supports women in mathematics at all levels of study. The "AWM Resources" link connects you to many other sites with useful information.

5. The
Math Forum Student Center has math resources for students of all levels.

6. Are you interested in history? Here is a website concerned with the History of Mathematics.

7. Want to know about connections between Math and Business, Industry and Government?  Check out the BIG Math Network (especially the Student Resources link).
