our students

Everything about being a statistics student has shaped the way I approach problem-solving. I’ve learned to be more skeptical, detail-oriented, and to really understand the context of problems before diving in and trying to implement solutions.

Our Vision

Education 

"I think I’ve grown as a critical thinker and am able to come up with more than one solution to any problem. Statistics keeps you thinking on your feet, but has also taught me to be really thorough and accurate in everything I do."
