Research Ambassadors

While most classes teach you about what is already known, research puts you on the cutting edge. You get firsthand experience into the material you are learning and may help change the knowledge base of the field. And while research may feel daunting, there are so many people who can serve as a support base such as faculty mentors and peers who want you to succeed and who help to guide you through the process. Research is an integral part of the university and having even a small part of that is extremely beneficial to your college experience.
