Clubs and Organizations
Make the most of your time at NC State by getting involved in one of these statistics-focused student groups, or explore other NC State organizations.
Statistics Club is for those interested in statistics and related professions (or for those just looking to meet and socialize with other stats majors). The purpose of the club is to expose people to the endless applications of statistics and what a career in stats really looks like, along with providing opportunities for members to network. The group hosts a variety of speakers who talk about their research and careers, which range from working for famous sports teams to working at the FBI, and also takes field trips to places like SAS.
Sports Analytics Club
The Sports Analytics Club is a student-run organization committed to the quantitative analysis of sports strategy and management. This club, which is open to all students and faculty at NC State, encourages and enables students to share ideas and complete research projects on any topic related to sports statistics. The club meets approximately every two weeks on Monday nights. On weeks with no meeting they sometimes get together to play a group sport.
Actuarial Club hosts local actuaries, organizes study materials and tutoring for actuarial exams, discusses current industry trends and events, and shares information on actuarial job and internship postings.
