Statistics Graduate Student Association

Who we are

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.
