Drop-In & Hacky Hours
Drop-In Hours allow students to meet with GradQuant staff without an appointment, on a “first-come, first-served” basis. During GradQuant drop-in hours, students can ask our consultants questions regarding statistics or programming.
Hacky Hours (Fall, Winter, and Spring only; not available during Summer) is a collaboration between GradQuant and the UCR Library and is open to undergraduate & graduate students, faculty, postdocs, and staff. No appointment necessary. During Hacky Hours you can talk about Python, R, Git, Bash, OpenRefine, data management, cleaning, visualization, & analysis, as well as quantitative methods.
Hacky Hours and Drop-In Hours are held on Zoom. Click here to login to Zoom with your UCR NetID and/or download Zoom client.
Please note that Drop-In Hours may be canceled on days when the consultant must attend to other commitments. Please check the GradQuant calendar for the most up-to-date schedule.
