The Department of Mathematics welcomes a new group of graduate students! The graduate cohort of 2018-19 is the largest ever, with 23 students entering their first year of regular study at Oregon State, one exchange student from France, and another who is getting a concurrent degree in Engineering. We also have three students beginning their Accelerated Masters Platform-ramp year. Two of our cohort have received recruitment awards: Hannah Barta is a Provost Scholar, and Nachuan Zhang is a recipient of Wei Family award. Congratulations! Please join Graduate Committee in greeting them and wishing them success in their first year.
