What advice would you give to students interested
in being involved in research?
Stop looking for jobs all over campus! UROP not only provides you with funds but

bullet point on your resume as I've personally been asked a lot of questions
about UROP and research involvement at job interviews and while applying for
Master's or PhD programs.
