After the attending the Getting Started in Undergraduate Research Workshop this past May, I felt encouraged enough to apply for volunteer positions. Knowing that the OUR would be available to help me with finding research gave me the confidence I needed to begin fruitful networking. I began volunteering in a lab about a month ago and could not be more pleased with this experience. Dr. Pollenz is completely devoted to the OUR. His enthusiasm and willingness to interact directly with students was essential to developing a research experience that counts toward my major requirements. I strongly recommend any undergraduate student interested in research to visit the OUR and attend the Getting Started in Undergraduate Research Workshop!
