Advicce for Future Students

My main piece of advice to anyone that takes business statistics in the future would be to pick a topic that you have interest in. Due to the time requirements of the project it would start to feel like a never ending drag to have to work on. On the flip side of that if you have interesting topic the hours spent on it do not seem so long. An interesting topic will also help you get to work on each aspect of the project early which I found to be a keep for success. Make sure to start the analysis and paper early because after gathering your survey out there and getting data it can seem that you should wait for more responses, if you are using on online tool, or plans to do more in person requests. From what we found conducting an online survey, almost everyone responded within 48 hours if they were going to respond at all. That being said the deadline for the paper sneaks up on you so make sure to get get started on it as soon as possible.

Here are a few possibilities for future research  projects. However, it is important to remember to choose a topic that will interest you not one that you think will be "easy" because all of these projects will require a substantial time commitment.

1. Based on a few options which type of fast food would you be most inclined to frequent given there was easy access at Hicks center?
2. Who buys apple products vs android and/or windows?
3. Why people choose the residential halls they do?
4. Alternatively you could look at seniors at attempt to figure out the most important reasons they moved off campus and why some stayed.
