The Department of Mathematical Sciences hosts student groups in Mathematics, Statistics, and Actuarial Science
DePaul Math Club
The DePaul Math Club typically meets at noon each Friday during the academic year. The Club provides fun and interesting activities and programs to benefit students of mathematics at all levels. The club hosts talks by faculty and students on mathematical topics outside of regular course content, in addition to regular fun features like the Integration Bee and problem-solving sessions. Pizza is provided at most Friday meetings of the DePaul Math Club. For more information about the DePaul Math Club, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their orgsync page.
The DePaul ASA-STATCOM is a combined student chapter of ASA and STATCOM for anyone who is passionate about statistics. ASA (American Statistical Association) is the world’s largest community of statisticians, and we are honored to start a student chapter at DePaul in 2017. We provide career information in the statistical sciences, as well as encourage students to continue studying statistics. ASA student chapter activities include academic tutorials, talks from industry, job events. Members of the chapter can join the ASA for only $25 per year.
Statistics in the Community (STATCOM) is a student-run volunteer organization started in 2001 at Purdue University’s Department of Statistics. STATCOM is a student organization that offers students opportunities to polish up their professional skills through practical projects from local businesses and organizations. STATCOM Chicago was launched at DePaul University in 2008. It is available to anyone with an interest in statistics. Our students are actively gaining practical experience in large data sets. They are working with advisors that are helping them understand data management. The work is pro-bono but students are able to put it on their resume. Most of the second year students become group leaders so they are responsible for meeting with a client regularly.
Actuarial Science Club
The DePaul Actuarial Science Club is an organization of undergraduate and graduate students at DePaul University who are interested in Actuarial Science. The club seeks to mentor interested students by:
- Inviting professionals to speak about the Actuarial industry.
- Helping students network with their peers and industry figureheads.
- Organizing study groups for the Society of Actuaries (SOA) exams.
