Biostatistics Students Association

The Biostatistics Student Association (BSA) was founded in 2009 by students in the Biostatistics Department at Boston University. The group organizes numerous student-driven events, including monthly student-faculty seminars and social events throughout the year.

Past events have included a fall semester pot-luck; a student luncheon with new and veteran students to discuss questions about courses, qualifying exams, internships, and career opportunities; and a feature lecture given by Dr. Joseph Massaro about the SAS Output Delivery System. The BSA also organized other social events, such as a happy hour get-together and a berry picking outing.

This year the group aims to continue organizing fun and informative events and social activities, including apple picking and bowling at Lucky Strike.

The purpose of the BSA is to foster an environment where its members can meet to discuss and debate current issues in the field of Biostatistics. This group strives for the promotion of ideas in Biostatistics, as well as networking with like-minded individuals within Biostatistics and related fields.

Monthly meetings are held in the Crosstown Building in the Department of Biostatistics.  See your email for upcoming meetings!
