This website is run by graduate students in the Department of Statistics and Operations Research at UNC Chapel Hill. Every day, we devise methods to try to extract as much information as possible from various kinds of data. However, we also recognize that sometimes the best way to gain knowledge is simply to collect more data. Here we have collected resources that may be useful for current students in our department and for students who wish to join our department. Our goals are to write down unwritten rules, demystify mysterious processes, and answer frequently asked questions. We hope to reduce confusion about all the ancillary aspects of being a graduate student so that you can focus on your academic priorities.
