ASC Orientation and Pizza Social On Feb 6, 2014

At our first member-only meeting last night, we were very excited to see so many members show up at a cold rainy Thursday night. The room was so packed that we were sorry some member had to stand for a while. Everyone gathered together, had awesome pizzas, and chatted about all the interesting stats-related topics.

The president Reagan led the presentation, showing all the resources that members could have access to, and talked about the networking skills such as how to dress professionally and how to shake hands, etc since E&Y and Deloitte will be holding info session in the next two weeks for ASC members.

As this semester takes off, we will have our first R workshop started next Tuesday led by Ashley.

Happy Weekend!

Spring 2014 Info Session

Last Thursday, we were really excited to have our first general meeting/info session with all the new and old friends. It was so great to be back and introduce our club again to those interested in data and statistics.  Each of the E-board member talked about their own data related experience, and we heard lots of exciting opportunities and resources we could get from Dr. Osuna, Dr. Ansari and Katharin(USC data librarian).

If you didn’t make it last week, that’s fine. Here is the PowerPoint( Spring Kickoff Meeting) from the event. We hope that can help you get to know more about our club and join our family!

Also, Katharin talked about all the data resources that we could find from USC libraries. The slides she showed in the meeting can be accessed here. You can also visit her library page. You will be amazed about how many interesting data sets we can find !
