The GSS is open to all graduate students.  Seminars and meetings are organized by our MS and PhD students.

Fall 2021:

Zoom + Halsey 120

Friday, November 26th - Internship Forum

Halsey 120 + Zoom
Some of your fellow Statistics graduate students will share experiences from internships they have had: how they found the internship, how they were hired, the projects they worked on, and more. 

Friday, November 3rd - Shelby Kiefner

Halsey 120 + Zoom
Shelby earned her Master's degree from the UVA Statistics Department in 2018 and currently works as a cybersecurity software developer at AT&T.
