What our students say:

"It was by far one of the best decisions I made as an undergraduate student researcher and has undoubtably opened many more doors for pursuing a graduate degree."

"Before this experience I had very little insight on the research process or graduate school, now I feel confident that I am prepared for life as a graduate student."
