STAT-ers become official ASA Student Chapter

May 27, 2016

STAT-ers has recently been recognized as an official student chapter of the American Statistical Association (ASA).  

The ASA Student Chapters program provides opportunities for students to connect with other students interested in statistics and interact with prominent statisticians. The ASA Student Chapters Program also encourages students to continue studying statistics and provides career information in the statistical science. By being recognized by ASA as a Student Chapter, STAT-ers will receive their own chapter microsite on the ASA website, a free ASA membership for the STAT-ers president, funding to hold social events, and invitations to national and local meetings. 

The Iowa STAT-ers club was created in 1979 to encourage professional growth in the field of statistics, and to provide a social outlet for graduate students in the Department of Statistics. The STAT-ers social committee organizes several functions to provide opportunities for interaction outside the hallways of Snedecor. Traditional highlights feature the Talent Show (with skits and musical entertainment), the Halloween Party, tennis and golf tournaments, picnics, and a weekly Friday Afternoon Club.
