Hello Math and Data Science Majors,

I hope your semester is continuing to go well. I am getting closer to being caught up on email, and you can look forward to the Spring 2024 semester schedule being published in MyRed on Monday, October 2nd.

Have you gotten involved in something outside of the classroom yet this semester? If you haven't, I would strongly suggest that you do so. The College of Arts and Sciences talks about Academics + Experiences = Opportunities, which I have seen be true for many students. The "Experiences" part comes outside of the classroom through Leadership, Research, Education Abroad, Service, or Internships. These are the kind of things you have actively have to pursue if you want to participate in them.

Want to gain leadership experience? You need to join a student organization first.

Want to get involved in research? You need to talk to a professor first.

Want to work in an internship? You have to apply for an opportunity first.

Want serve the local community? You have to volunteer first.

Want to go on an Education Abroad trip? You need to visit the Global Experiences office first.

No one is going to hand you an opportunity to gain real-world, outside of the classroom experience, and you will need this experience if you want to have opportunities after you graduate. Not sure where to start? Come visit me for an appointment or drop-in meeting.

Best wishes, Doug
