Hello All,

I wanted to give you a quick recap on the second annual ASA Five College DataFest that took place at UMass over the weekend. 

Smith sent three teams of five students, each of whom stuck it out over the entire weekend and delivered compelling presentations on Sunday afternoon. A picture of the full group is posted here:

and you can see some other shots of Smithies on Twitter at #datafest

For the second year in a row, we brought home the Best in Show prize! This time it was with a highly interdisciplinary team (called 2β||!2β — get it?) consisting of majors in MTH, EGR, CSC, and ECO. They are featured on the Smith News page right now! Please congratulate them the next time you see them: Galen Long, Sara Stoudt, Zhenzhen Tan, Aiyi Zhang, and Vega Zhang. 

Anyone interested in participating in DataFest next year should let me know, and I will keep you in the loop. 

Best,

-Ben
