Attention all mathies! For too long, Statistics has been rejected by the student body as a discipline unworthy of representation. But despite everything you've learned from STAT 231, stats is a very interesting and useful subject (and not just for gambling)! There are MathSoc clubs for nearly every other program, yet stats is a core Math Faculty department with no undergraduate student organization. It is time to end the madness!
I propose that we create a Stats Club, to officially represent our stats majors and anyone with a passion for probability, statistics, and related fields. The purpose of this club would be to promote academic learning and awareness for of discipline in our undergraduate community. It would also provide a social environment for anyone interested in statistics or who wishes to learn more about it.
The Stats Club would not just be useful for Stats majors; if you have any interest in algorithms, measure theory, bioinformatics, business & finance, machine learning, actuarial science, quantum computing, or ANYthing else, this is for you!
More reasons why a Stats Club would be nifty:
If you would like to help create a Stats Club or would like more information, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org). I will be running a dis-Org meeting for all interested parties within the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
