1) BSA Monthly Meeting will be Thursday from October 13th 1-2pm in CT 302. Bring you lunch and we can chat about lots of upcoming events. We have to select a Biostats student for the member spot light for November/December, as well as elect a Treasurer for the club. If you are unable to attend but have an interest in nominating yourself or someone else – please reply to this email so we can count you in!
2) Our Second Journal Club meeting will be on Wed. Oct 19th from 1-2pm in CT332. The article has been chosen and is located under the Journal Club link on this page. Ever wonder what simulation studies are? How to conduct them? How many simulations you need to run? How to summarize your results? We hope to discuss this and more!
3) Biostats Fall Party – at BU Fit Rec, Sunday October 23rd - this is def. a must attend! Not only can you climb the rock wall (or race your fellow classmates up the wall [Sean Lacey you are going down this year!]), play volley ball/soccer, and socialize with your classmates/professors and the families – but also eat some amazing food! I’m crossing MY fingers for mac and cheese and red velvet cupcakes – just sayin’….
4) Halloween Party – We haven’t worked out all the details on this one yet – but we’re thinking it’ll be on October 28th – you’ll basically have to dress up in your favorite costume and get some yummy desserts.
5) How to Get Published Seminar. - This will be on Nov 3rd at 2pm – (I know it’s not October – but we had originally planned for it to be this month). We are still finalizing the panelists who will be in attendance - but keep your eyes/ears open for more details in the next week or so. We know some of you have class until 2 pm – so please feel free to come by a little late. We’re currently working out how to record the session – so if you can’t make it you can listen in later on.
See everyone Thursday!
