In Person Appointments:
All scheduled in-person appointments are held in the Henry Madden Library, Second Floor, Room 2120. Each appointment is held in our private office, and will last 50 minutes.
Every hour the Graduate Statistics Studio is open may be considered a "drop-in" time. Students often do not use all 50 minutes of a session, and there are occasionally students who fail to show up for scheduled appointments. If the Graduate Statistics Studio door is open (i.e., the "Consultation in Progress" sign is not posted), students are welcome to "drop-in" on the consultant; even if it's only for 15 minutes, it could be time well-spent.
Virtual Appointments: ZOOM
Zoom is an online meeting and conferencing platform that allows for audio, video, and screen sharing. It is an easy to use and high quality solution for those students who, due to distance and time constraints, are unable to physically meet with statistics consultants. If you would like more information about Zoom, please visit their website: www.zoom.us.
In the Graduate Statistics Studio, we are utilizing Zoom for one-on-one statistics consultations. We are implementing “Zoom only” and “Zoom hybrid” sessions. “Zoom only” sessions use the audio, video, and screen sharing features. “Zoom hybrid” sessions use the screen sharing features of Zoom along with audio via a traditional phone line. The hybrid session accommodates students who may not have a microphone-enabled computer. In this instance, the consultant will invite the student to the on-line Zoom meeting and will also call the student on the phone.
GSS Open Hours
Every Friday from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM the Graduate Statistics Studio will have hours open to everyone. No need to make an appointment, so just come on in!
