Events we will host in this quarter:
Math/Stats Review Seminar
At the beginning of each quarter, the EUB puts on a math/stats review seminar with two sessions: one focuses on concepts needed for Economics 200/201 and the other on skills that apply to Economics 300/301. If it has been a long time since you’ve taken a math/stats course or you just need a refresher, this is a quick way to get up to speed. Our review session of Winter 2018 will be host on January 18th in Paccar 395 at 5:30 PM.
