For Students

There are several ways students can get involved in undergraduate research. The first and most effective way is to talk with your professors. Most opportunities come about when students discuss their interests and goals with their professors. However, we know that this can be intimidating. The Office of Undergraduate Research will gladly help students find faculty mentors. Our office is located in 001 Camden Carroll Library.
