Graduate Statistics Studio
Welcome to the Graduate Statistics Studio
The graduate statistics studio provides research and statistical consulting to all graduate students. We are able to meet with students here on campus or online (via ZOOM).
PLEASE NOTE: The Graduate Study Center is physically closed until further notice.
Location: Henry Madden Library, Graduate Study Center (Second Floor), Room 2119 (Click here for a Map)
You are welcome to come to the Graduate Study Center to meet one-on-one with a statistics consultant. Each appointment is scheduled for 50 minutes.
Every hour the Graduate Statistics Studio is open may be considered a "walk-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. When studying in the Graduate Study Center and the Studio door is open, students are welcome to "walk-in" on the consultant; even if it's only for 15 minutes, it could be time well-spent.
Virtual Appointments: ZOOM
Any appointment at the GSS can be a Zoom appointment. Simply indicate this when the appointment is made, or email us the date and time of your scheduled appointment to let us know that you would like to meet via Zoom instead. We will email you a link to the Zoom meeting a few minutes prior to your scheduled appointment time.
Zoom is an online meeting and conferencing platform that allows for audio 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 online Zoom meeting and will also call the student on the phone.
Group Sessions In-person / via Zoom
A block of time (1-4 hours) is scheduled for open study hall environment. Students are encouraged to collaborate with other students and ask questions of an on-hand consultant. The computers in the Graduate Study Center are available for use and do have SPSS. Students are encouraged to bring their laptops, as well. Sessions will be held in the GSS (HML 2120). the Graduate Study Center, or in The Collaboration Hub (HML 2145), depending on space and availability. Stay tuned for future sessions!
