Graduate students at the 2018 Halloween party

Welcome to the Statistics Graduate Student Association webpage!

We represent the interests of graduate students in the Department of Statistics at Penn State and serve as a formal channel for communication between graduate students and faculty on key issues. SGSA also organizes several events, including weekly workshops, board game nights, socials, and a journal club, and members also volunteer with the department’s annual DataFest competition.
