Do you have a meal plan that leaves you with too many meal swipes to use up at the end of the week? Are you unsure of what to get, but don't want to waste you hard earned college funds? Well if so, here is the solution!!!

Serving with Swipes is a non-profit student organization in which you can use your unused meal swipes to donate food to the nearby food pantry. This is a great way to help those who are less fortunate while also learning not to be wasteful.

Just use your extra meal swipes at the Zees stores to purchase nonperishable, canned, or boxed foods. Drop them in the boxes located in the Zees stores at Exchange, Rob's Cafe, Quaker Square, or the Student Union.

Serving with Swipes-A great way to give back to the community and help those who are poor.

Colloquium - Department of Statistics
December 1st, 2011

CAS 109
Nicole Knapp, Master’s Candidate

In the field of statistics there are many types of predictive models that are said to be best to represent a given data set. For example, a common model that many statisticians are familiar with is a regression model. This model is relatively easy to understand and interpret. However, sometimes a regression model is not strong enough to represent the given data. On the other hand, a Neural Network, while complicated to produce, is a very powerful predictive model. For this presentation it will be revealed how complex and powerful a Neural Network is through the explanation of the algorithm and a demonstration of SAS Enterprise Miner using an authentic FirstEnergy data set.
