I really encourage students to try out different research projects to find ones that interest them the most and then stick to those projects, as the more you persevere, the more you learn and enjoy.

Graduation Year: 2024
To those thinking about research, I would tell them to not be afraid and to just go for any opportunity they are considering because it will surprise them how natural and welcoming research can be. It is not a competition, but rather a supportive and patient community ready to welcome any contributions from passionate minds.
Major: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2023
Research something you are passionate about. Don’t research something that you’re not interested in because you want to build your resume or you want to publish a paper. Passion really shows in research.

Find your balance. You need time to study, but you also need to spend time with your family and, occasionally, time away from both school and family.

Major: Chemistry
Graduation Year: Spring 2022
My advice for students would be to not be shy, and take the leap! You only have 4 years in undergrad – if you want to do research, email every professor who has a lab for an opportunity to tour their lab, shadow undergraduate researchers in the lab, and even get yourself a research position!

Your journey may look different from other people's, but you are no less deserving of an excellent education.
