Meet the OURCI Ambassadors (2018-2019)
OURCI is currently looking for interested students to serve as OURCI Ambassadors. Check out our page "Being an Ambassador" for more information.
Research has provided the freedom for me to engage in academics outside of the classroom and to go beyond my limits. I can't think of a better opportunity to get involved, get connected, and get acclimated to the type of work I wish to pursue in the future. Not only do I feel the benefit of research but it also creates a lasting impact for others!
Performing undergraduate research allowed me to get a visual understanding of what a career looks like in my field of study. I loved being able to build a valuable relationship with my faculty mentor, who presented me with many opportunities in forms of competitive research symposiums and scholarships.
I love my research and being an ambassador because it opens my eyes to cross disciplinary issues that could be looked into from a different perspective and I think that is invaluable.
My experience with undergraduate reserach has allowed me to work with great mentors that encourage critical thinking and skill learning while contributing to greater knowledge in our research area.
