This week was a hands on meeting meant to help students on their journey to applying for REUs(Research Experiences for Undergraduates). The task of writing an application and sending it off for someone else to review can feel extremely daunting. So frightening in fact that some students put off the process of applying until itsContinue reading “REU Workshop”
