Student Experience

Incoming freshman may participate in research through the Arts and Sciences Undergraduate Research Experience (ASURE) program. Students pursuing the Program I Traditional Physics B.S. degree also enjoy an early introduction to lab work. Other undergraduate majors become involved in research projects during their junior and senior years. These experiences often prove transformative, providing a vision of the path future careers or advanced education could take.
