Connecting research opportunities to undergraduate students

One awesome advantage you have by attending a leading research university is the opportunity to participate in faculty mentored research, scholarship, or creative activity as an undergraduate. 

Every quarter, hundreds of UC Riverside undergraduate students work with faculty on research and creative projects in the campus’ libraries, studios, and laboratories, as well as in the community, in the field, and abroad.

Look through this website, its information, pictures, and interviews with students and faculty mentors.  Make sure to place the Symposium dates on your calendar so you don’t miss the presentations made by students about their undergraduate research activities.  Read through the Undergraduate Research Journals – someday it could be your article that is published!
