Participating in undergraduate research is an excellent way for students to challenge themselves, build relationships with senior researchers, and add depth to their university experience.
As early as freshman year, students in the School of Science can engage in research assignments with faculty mentors. Undergraduate researchers receive financial support, gain access to advanced lab equipment, and enjoy the opportunity to work one-on-one with renowned faculty. Many students present their research at national meetings, and their findings are occasionally published in scientific journals.
Upon graduation, research experience gives students an edge in graduate school, medical school, and their careers.
To get started, interested students should contact a faculty member whose interests align with their own. Students can also talk to their academic advisor about research opportunities.
