Undergraduate Research Opportunities Fair Aug. 26

By Tom Roesler

Hands-on experience is a valuable asset for all students. Getting that experience as an undergraduate is even more valuable. The College of Arts & Sciences provides opportunities for undergraduate research in every department in the college.

Students can explore research, scholarship and discovery opportunities at the College of Arts & Sciences Undergraduate Research Opportunities Fair from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 26, in the Coffman Commons, between Eisenhower Hall and Hale Library.

Representatives from more than 20 departments in the college will be on hand to answer questions and provide information about how students can get involved with the Undergraduate Research Program and the Student Research Travel Program.

From laboratories to libraries, the fair will showcase a wide range of scholarly activities and discovery opportunities in the College of Arts & Sciences, K-State's largest and most diverse college.

"Many of our graduates who have had successful professional careers got their start with undergraduate research in the College of Arts & Sciences," said Beth Montelone, the college's associate dean of research. "We hope to make this opportunity available to many more of our students in the future. Please come by and learn about the options!"

Students who are interested will have the opportunity to work closely with a faculty member to hone their research interests and make a contribution to the field at one of the nation's leading public research universities while earning a scholarship. They also will be able to network with researchers at conferences to present findings. This is a chance to help stand out when searching for a career or applying to graduate or professional school.

Free lemonade and cookies will also be provided. Read more information and view a list of departments that will be at the event.
