May Q exams will be during the week of May 20-24 (hopefully May 20-23) unless unforseen scheduling problems arise. Fifteen of our PhD students will participate — let’s all do our part to help our colleagues as they prepare. If there will be mock Qs administered by SiGMA, now is perhaps the time to start planning for that.
My understanding is that we might be able to arrange for a SiGMA happy hour on the 23rd and have the Q exams completed by then, so the happy hour can be a celebration that Q exams are over. i will be endeavoring to manage Q scheduling to this end. Those interested in information about SiGMA activities should inquire with SiGMA officers.
