My time as a Math/Stats double major was challenging but rewarding. Although at times the workload was heavy, the personal support and hands on approach by all professors make success achievable.
I love being a statistics major at Misericordia. Not only am I exposed to critical thinking, analytical reasoning and problem solving on all levels, but I am also exposed to statistics in all facets such as sports, business, education, health care, research and development and computer science. Misericordia’s statistics program has given me the opportunity to combine my passion for sports, with a mathematical science and a highly employable degree.
