Welcome, new MSS students!

Incoming Masters

The Master’s of Statistical Science program welcomed 51 new students to Durham last week. The incoming MSS class came from all over the globe to participate in the program’s Math and Stat Bootcamp last week, led by Ph.D. students Christine Shen and Steven Winter. Orientation continues this week with Computing Bootcamp, a departmental welcome from department chair Dr. Surya Tokdar and Program Director Dr. Funda Gunes. Their sessions also included speakers from OIE/OSC, DuWell, Scholars@Duke, as well as Dr. Joan Combs Durso and Nicole Scott from the Statistical Science department. The week will end with a social where incoming students meet their 2nd-year mentors and attend a Durham Bulls game. We are excited to welcome this new group of students into the Duke Statistical Science community!
