Saint Vincent College president Br. Norman W. Hipps, O.S.B., who taught college mathematics for more than four decades, invited Pittsburgh Steelers rookie quarterback Joshua Dobbs to join him in the College’s Sis and Herman Dupré Science Pavilion for a conversation about mathematics, Fibonacci Sequence, pi and other topics of mutual interest. He wanted to get acquainted with Dobbs, who graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in aerospace engineering, after hearing about his ability to recite the first 48 digits of the math phenomenon, pi. Br. Norman also gave him copies of The Math Book and The Rule of Saint Benedict, which details how Benedictine monks work and pray in community. Dobbs told Br. Norman he is enjoying his first summer camp at Saint Vincent and the hospitality that he has experienced on campus and in the community.
