Undergraduate Research is for Everyone!

The great thing about undergraduate research is that everyone can get involved! In most cases, you don't need any prior research experience (or a perfect GPA) to participate. Students from all backgrounds engage in research with faculty mentors at OSU, including transfer students, first-generation college students, and students earning their degrees from a distance. Wondering if students who are majoring in subjects like business or music do undergraduate research? The answer is absolutely! Students from all disciplines participate in research as undergraduates. While many students work primarily with a faculty mentor, some undergraduate researchers are mentored by graduate students.
