About Our Students

"Undergraduate research made me responsible for exploring, justifying, conducting, and presenting projects. These responsibilities enabled personal development while leading to results fit for publication. The process also led to many opportunities to present my research in exciting conferences across the country." - '14 Corey McClintock, Chemistry/Literature

"Undergradute research allowed me to fine tune my academic skills independently, with one-on-one contact with the research advisor. It also provided me with opportunities I never thought were possible. Presenting my research at numerous conferences was a fantastic experience. Many future employers are very impressed with students coming from a research background." - '14 Thomas Lovejoy-Henkel, Management and Accountancy
