There has never been a better time to be a statistician.

Texas A&M Statistics is hoping to capitalize on this current trend and our decades of success as a department by embarking on a unique effort to benefit our former, current, and future students. But to do so, we’ll need your help.

We’ve started the Statistics Former Student Network to leverage the rich and varied experiences, expertise, and skill sets of our former students to help enrich and extend the educational experiences for our present and prospective graduate and undergraduate students.

Because we believe the short- and long-term success of such a powerful group begins and ends with its potential members, we value your input, ideas, and advice.  If you have interest in serving on the board, have suggestions for talks or webinars, wish to assist with mentoring students, or have any other ideas for SFSN, please contact us!

One of Texas A&M University’s best assets is its people — successful former students, colleagues, and friends with a wealth of institutional, industry, and inspirational knowledge to offer. We encourage you to consider giving back by paying it forward. Advantage, Aggies!
