COSAM Research Fair encourages students to actively pursue research

Students who are interested in beginning undergraduate research were able to explore the wide range of opportunities available to them at the 3rd Annual Undergraduate Research Opportunities Fair hosted by the College of Sciences and Mathematics (COSAM). This year, the fair featured 18 undergraduate research labs aiming to connect students to the lab that suits them best.

Helping students find the research field that they are passionate about is very important because while many students are required to put in at least 2 hours at the undergraduate research lab of their choice, some students extend well beyond this requirement and spend more time diving deeper into a field that truly interests them.

Conducting undergraduate research can offer students a more developed understanding of the research process, become devoted to a topic they’re passionate about, and overall be actively engaged on campus.

For students who weren’t able to make it to the Opportunity Fair, it is highly encouraged that you reach out to the Undergraduate Research Ambassadors at  They have office hours that are available to students to discuss future research opportunities.
