Welcome to F18!

I know! I know!  The Summer is pretty much finished – last week before the campus is bustling with all the undergrad students and all the new graduate students!  I also hope it means an end in sight of these “hot” and “humid” days!

First of all a BIG WELCOME to all new graduate students.  I hope this Blog will help you along with your studies.  I’m also looking for input, so please don’t hesitate to email me with thoughts, comments, critiques, questions, or anything.  oacstats@uoguelph.ca is the way to get ahold of me!

So, what’s happening this Fall?

LISTSERV

I’m trying to find different ways to communicate with the OAC research community, so I’ve created a LISTSERV – oac-stats@listserv.uoguelph.ca  If you are interested in being added to it, please email oacstats@uoguelph.ca and I will add you.

Welcome!

Welcome to the OAC Statistics Support blog.  This is where you will find all the notes and information used in all the workshops and sessions that I run.  I may also add a few notes about topics that come up during my consultation appointments.

How does this website work?  It is a blog so it will keep running like a roll of papertowel.  I’ve categorized all the posts and have added a word cloud on the right so you can select the topic at large.  You will also notice pages at the top – please browse around.

If at any point you have a suggestion on how this could be better organized, please let me know at oacstats@uoguelph.ca

Thank-you!
