Stand Out With Your Research

Students who perform undergraduate research stand out from the crowd when applying for jobs and graduate schools.

Present Your Research
Our students present their research at conferences nationwide and at our annual Undergraduate Research Symposium right here on campus.

From mentoring motivated students in writing their first scientific publication to offering a free poster printing service on campus, we have the resources to help students stand out from the crowd.

Research Scholar Awards
We recognize research excellence among graduating students with our annual Undergraduate Research Scholars Awards and a special ceremony at commencement.
