Carleton mathematics and statistics students are actively involved in the Carleton and Northfield communities. These activities might arise through senior comps, summer research or a mathematics or statistics course.
Carleton students, under the supervision of statistics faculty, offer their services as statistical consultants to local businesses and non-profit institutions. This statistical consulting course is open to students who have taken applied regression analysis and is not limited to majors.
