Undergraduate Research

The WSU-wide Office of Undergraduate Research guides students from all majors and grades as they seek to "research, conduct scholarship, and pursue creative activities" with mentors.


Undergraduates currently involved in research work as peer mentors.  They can answer your questions, such as "How do I get started?," "Will I get paid or am I eligible for a special scholarship?," and "How do I find a faculty mentor?"

No appointments are necessary to meet with your peer mentors in the Smith Center for Undergraduate Education (CUE) 403 (new location). Hours for Fall 2014 are:

Mondays: Noon to 1:00 p.m.
Wednesdays: 11:00 a.m. to Noon
Thursdays: 1:00 to 2:00 p.m.

NOTE: Mentors are not available during Thanksgiving break, Dead Week, or Finals Week.
