The Department of Statistics hosted an Alumni and Friends reception at the Hyatt Regency in Denver, Colorado on August 3, 2008 during the 2008 Joint Statistical Meetings. Approximately 40 alumni and friends attended the reception. George McCabe, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, gave the group updates on the activities, programs and people within the College of Science and Mary Ellen Bock, Department of Statistics Head, updated the group about the Department's activities including the Dean's appointment of Professor Rebecca W. Doerge as Interim Department Head for 2008-2009 during her sabbatical. The Department looks forward to gathering again with our alumni and friends at the 2009 Joint Statistical Meetings in Washington, D.C. See you there!
