Students line up for research

First-year and some second-year students are eligible to take part in the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP), in which each student is paired with a professor who requests undergraduate students to work in his or her laboratory or research environment. Students choose from hundreds of projects and may work with other UROP students or by themselves with the researcher and his or her staff. Each fall, students visit the UROP office to pore through the thick books of possibilities, sometimes only finding room to sit on the floor or in corridors. Photo by Rebecca A. Doyle
