Questions? Ask an expert!


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). Mentors in spring 2014 are available Tuesdays 3-4 p.m., Wednesdays 3-4 p.m., and Thursdays 11-noon.
