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.
Students on campus for WSU-sponsored summer undergraduate research can find more information about their programs and important dates here.
Undergraduates currently involved in research are available for several hours most weeks to mentor you. 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 peer mentors in the Smith Center for Undergraduate Education (CUE) 403. One-hour-long slots in Spring 2015 are set for:
Tuesdays at both 9 and Noon
Wednesdays at 3
Thursdays at 11
Emailing them is another good way to reach them. Read their bios and get their contact information on the Peer Mentoring webpage.
