A quote from one of our 2009 Scholarship recipients:
I enjoyed every part of the conference. The opportunity to network and learn about SAS was amazing. It is a great conference for students. It has made me more confident about sharing my thoughts about SAS with fellow graduate students and professors. SESUG 2009 was a great way to learn some serious SAS code in a laid-back environment! There's no question about not returning to SESUG, I will definitely see you next year.
