The 2016 program saw a number of changes implemented in the set up of the research period. From weekly meetings, to two part seminars spanning six days total, the program offered more time for the students to research continuously throughout the week. This was also the ten year of our program, a celebratory anniversary which saw the return of SURF Alumni for our poster day! Check the SURF Alumni page for more information about what Alumni have been up to.
The 2015 program again saw a record number of participants and a very successful Research Day Poster Presentation event. Posters and papers can be reviewed by clicking the links under participant names. Be sure to check the SURF Alumni page for more news.
The SURF 2014 program wrapped up its eighth year with a record number of 36 undergraduate students who worked on research projects in a wide range of areas, including the social sciences, the natural sciences, and arts and humanities.
The Weekly Seminars where a new component of the program in 2014 that gave students the opportunity to network, share their experiences, talk about their areas of interest, and hear guest speakers discuss their own research and professional accomplishments.
SURF students conducted research both in the lab and out in the field. Click here to check out some photos of what they did, and to see what it's like to be part of the SURF program.
Once their research was complete, students participated in Research Day, where they presented posters and other forms of media to display their work to faculty, staff and guests.
