Research opportunities for undergraduates

We strongly encourage our undergraduates to seek out research opportunities! Reach out to one of the many research groups around the College for hands-on experience that won't only change how you think about your coursework, but might even make a difference in the world. You can even get paid to do research through our math Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program or from other College- or university-sponsored programs.
