At Union, undergraduates have the kind of research opportunities that many larger universities reserve only for graduate students. Research happens every day in our state-of-the-art laboratories, of course, but you're just as likely to be in the darkroom, the dance studio, a local stream or a village across the globe. Hands-on research is a staple of the Union curriculum, and you'll often work side-by-side with a professor seeking answers to exciting new questions.
You might present your research at a national conference, or co-author a paper with your professor and submit it to a professional journal. Maybe you'll take advantage of our IBM Intelligent Cluster Computer to pose questions or simulate environments that have never before been explored. You'll likely participate in our annual Steinmetz Symposium, presenting your projects to faculty, peers and visiting parents on this special day dedicated to showcasing student research.
