Welcome to the Spring Semester!

Welcome back! We hope you all had a restful break and are ready to tackle the spring semester. Here are a couple of events to look forward to in the next couple of weeks!

Potluck Party
We will hold a potluck party on NEXT Friday, January 23rd, from 11:30 to 13:30 in CH212. All the faculty, staff, and students are invited to bring their best dish. Even if you don’t get a chance to prepare one, please feel free to come and enjoy the food from around the world. To make it more fun, we will vote for the Best Entree, Best Salad, Best Dessert, and Best Vegetarian Dish after the party. A beloved department t-shirt will go to each winning chef.
Internship Info Session
Looking for an internship for the summer? We will be holding a student seminar where your fellow graduate students will share their previous internship experiences. You will get information on where to look for internships, how to apply, and what you can hope to gain from a summer internship. This will be held on February 3rd at 11:30 in CH 212. More details will be forthcoming, but save the date!
Department T-shirt Design Contest
We will be holding our annual department t-shirt design contest, where students will submit their designs and the department will vote on their favorite. Look for an email with more details about the competition.

Good luck on exams!

As a busy semester draws to a close, we’d like to take this opportunity to wish everyone good luck as they finish exams and projects. Just a few more days, and it will be time for a well-deserved break. Finish strong!

Happy Holidays!

Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year!

It’s that time of year again! First, on behalf of the entire department, we wish to extend a warm welcome to all incoming students, and to welcome back all returning students.

Our first official department social event this past Sunday was a great success! Faculty, students, and their families came out for great conversation and Graeter’s ice cream. Nothing puts smiles on statisticians’ faces like free ice cream, courtesy of the Statistics department.
