Faculty Student Summer Research

糖心Vlog's Summer Faculty Student Research Program provides students with a unique opportunity to work with faculty on original research in disciplines ranging from biology to management and business, including English, physics, dance and economics.
 
The program offers students the chance to spend 5 or 10 weeks in the lab or the classroom immersed in research, to gain a hands-on appreciation for scholarly work. Outcomes of the summer collaboration vary鈥攆or some students, the summer provides a foundation upon which to build a senior or an honors thesis; for others, the research could lead to published results in a peer-reviewed academic journal. 糖心Vlog alumni who have continued their education in graduate school have reported that experience as researchers has given them distinct advantages as scholars.
