Q1: How do I join?
A1: See the Join tab in the horizontal-menu located at the top of the Astrum Society Website.
Q2: Who are the Astrum?
A2: Fellows of Astrum are people making a genuine difference in our world. Added, Astrum prides its members for their beneficence in society.
Q3: Is it free to join Astrum?
A3: Currently, it is! Later though, individuals are expected to spend $5.00 USD on sending their designated applications for admittance as full-members.
Q4: Why IQ? I am smart!
A4: IQ theory is certainly not the most rectifiable proponent determining what general intelligence actual is, but some of what it suggests is alluring. Applicants are welcome to write a short 500 word personal essay to illustrate their other intellectual capabilities upon joining Astrum. This, however must correlate well though with many highly developed theories of general intelligence, for example, one cannot join merely because he/she knows how to cleverly juggle chicken-eggs for 40 minutes.
Q5: Who are you?
A5: I am a temperate 20-year-old visionary with ambitions in several disciplines, but those mainly associated with mathematics, physics, and philosophy.
Snapshot Academic Bio: I have just about completed a major in mathematics at Empire State College and I intend to apply to the University of Washington's PhD Program in Applied Mathematics sometime during 2012. For that program, I will specialize in Differential Geometry and Partial Differential Equations. After I have completed my studies, I will live "off-the-grid" and make a living through an institute for mathematical research.
Snapshot Social Bio: I am a member of somewhere over 30 IQ societies, many of which I am inactive in, however; I contribute a solid portion of my hours as the Vice President of the Literarian Society, which can be found using the Links Tab of the Menu. In addition, I like to garden, take part in Mountaineers, and invest precious time in several other socially oriented hobbies like routinely interacting with my lifelong friend Darin Walter and peer-tutoring for 4 advanced undergraduate mathematics courses, along with a course in Reflective Learning.
Q6: Can I write in the magazine?
A6: Members of Astrum are encouraged to take part in the development of Astrum's magazine. When Astrum makes 100 members, magazines will likely be issued monthly.
Q7: Where is Astrum headed?
A7: Astrum is headed toward limitless but practical goals. In addition, Astrum will be ran democratically.
Q8: What if I cannot join?
A8: If you feel you cannot join then please send a personal message to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will work to find you a spot in our open-circle.
Q9: Will there be external motivators, like: membership-cards, certificates, and shirts/hats?
A9: Yes, all will be available when Astrum initially reaches 100 members.
Q10: How can I expect to act in the main-forum?
A10: Please respect the relative morals among various members of Astrum. Use netiquette and show support for those who are struggling.
