Welcome!

Who is excited for the upcoming 2011-2012 academic year?  We are!

We’d just like to say a big welcome back to our old friends and an even bigger WELCOME to the new students!  The Biostatistics Student Association (BSA) would like to kick this year off right and do so we have organized the following:

Our FIRST monthly meeting is Thursday, September 8th from 1-2pm in room CT332.  We hope to discuss lots of things for the upcoming academic year – including social events, educational events/workshops, the NEW Journal Club!, etc…

Our FIRST social event is Friday, September 9th from 1:30-3pm in room CT 302.  We will be hosting a Dessert Potluck where students can mingle and to learn more about the BSA.  We’ll be supplying some snacks, BUT we definitely would love for everyone to bring a dessert to share.

Later this month on Wednesday, September 21st, the BSA will be holdings its inaugural Journal Club meeting.  The Journal Club will meet on the 3rd Wednesday of each month in Room 332 from 1-2pm.  Information about the journals and the club can be found under the Journal Club Page.

This fall we are excited to have three of our students and one special alum participate in the Wicked Salem 1/2 Marathon.  This race takes place in Salem, MA on Sept 24th!  It might be too late to start training for THIS 1/2 marathon, but I’m sure these ladies will be signing up for more races soon. If you’re interested in joining them please contact Sarah Leatherman (our very our BSA President !!!) for more details!

We are excited to announce starting in September we will be featuring a student in the BSA Spotlight each month.  The BSA Spotlight is a chance to highlight the achievements of our fellow students.  Information on the BSA spotlight can be found, here, on our webpage, as well as on our BRAND NEW bulletin board (next to room CT 332 and the kitchen).  If you would like to nominate someone for the BSA Spotlight please email one of the officers or the BSA email:  bubsa@bu.edu.
