Math & Stats programs at the University of Guelph have always "hit above their weight" -- we have small programs with lots of POP! -- and we have two more outstanding examples to add:
We are delighted to congratulate Laura Thompson (2014 B.Sc. Applied Math & Stats Co-op) for being awarded the UoG's Governor General's Silver Medal, for top performance at the university by an undergraduate student! Laura is also the recipient of the College of Physical and Engineering Science (CPES) Graduation Prize and has been named to the CPES Society of Excellence.
We are also thrilled to congratulate Sarah Plosker (2013 Ph.D. Applied Math) for being awarded the UoG's Governor General's Gold Medal, for top performance at the university by a graduate student! This creates a rare back-to-back program success, as Nathaniel Johnston (2012 Ph.D. Applied Math) received last year's Gold Medal!
