Beyond UNC: Internships, Jobs, and Degrees (2020)

By on August 7, 2020

My second year teaching in the Statistics and Operations Research (STOR) Department at UNC was better than the first year. I got to experience my first pandemic and married my lovely wife, Meredith Gentle. Speaking as a statistician, I would describe the average UNC student as respectful, mature, diligent, and motivated. Serving these students has been a blessing.

In STOR, we believe we are providing students with content that is useful in the modern day. Even if you are a not seeking to make STOR your life, a few of our classes can make you far more marketable and competitive in whichever area you are passionate.

The gallery below showcases the myriad of ways UNC students are applying or advancing their education. Ignore the noise, make reasonable decisions, study STOR at UNC.
