In Person Appointments:
Currently, in person appointments have been suspended. We are available to meet virtually via ZOOM.
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.
For the fall semester, we will be conducting all appointments virtually via ZOOM, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we have any last minute cancellations.
Virtual Appointments: ZOOM
For the fall semester, all of our appointments will be conducted virtually via 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 student can dial into the ZOOM meeting via phone using a phone number provided by the consultant.
