HASSA Calendar

For more details about an event, see recent email announcements to HAS student listservs or contact a HASSA student officer at: uahassa@gmail.com.  For some events, an RSVP may be required so we can provide for each individual, e.g. have enough computers/software for workshops or have enough transport/car pooling to an off-campus location. Past workshops have included MATLAB Introduction, Adobe/Photoshop, R Project Statistical Computing, C Shell and NCL, and Publishing (in journals and similar publications).  Go to HASSA Main Page  Go to list of Weekly Seminars  |
