BU Student Chapter of the ASA

Welcome to the BUSCASA (pronounced boo-casa, the ‘s’ is silent!) home page!  Here you’ll find information on our student chapter of the American Statistical Association (ASA), including upcoming events.

In Fall of 2014, Boston University was proud to become a pilot ASA student chapter.  Our mission statement describes the goals of this chapter:

The purpose of this student chapter shall be to promote statistical practice and research, to unify students across the University with an interest in statistics, and to provide networking opportunities in both industry and academia.
