Congratulations to Madison Jewell, the featured Student Spotlight for December and January!


What does undergraduate research mean to you?

Undergraduate research has been a huge part of my college career. It has given me the opportunity to collaborate with professors and graduate students to further my understanding of the research process. Presenting at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research reaffirmed my thoughts of the importance of being involved in research. Seeing so many other students from different universities attending this conference was eye-opening.

How does research fit into your long-term goals?

I plan on going to graduate school to earn a degree in School Counseling. My research experiences have prepared me to be a successful graduate student. Working so closely with current graduate students has allowed me to learn about the daily requirements of being in graduate school. In addition, I believe understanding research is a necessary skill for my future career.
