After learning about the apartment fire that occurred in the early morning of June 6, we learned that three graduate students from the Department of Statistics were residents of the building. Hengfang Wang, Xiaofei Zhang, and Shan Yu (not pictured) lost their homes and all of their possessions.
Faculty, staff, and graduate students wasted no time and donated $1509 in just a couple of days, meaning each student will get $503 to help get them back on their feet. Thank you so much to everyone who donated. It is appreciated very much!
