Research and Creative Projects
Working on a research or creative project with a faculty mentor is a tremendous opportunity for Student Achievement. Indeed, research is a hallmark of the Ursinus experience, and in some majors a full 100% of students do research projects during their undergraduate years. Because of the quality of the faculty and the close interaction with students, you'll do work at a level most students wouldn't experience until graduate school.
The Summer Fellows program at Ursinus allows you as a sophomore or junior to pursue an independent scholarly project under the close tutelage of a faculty mentor, when both you and the professor have more time to devote exclusively to research.
The Celebration of Student Achievement (CoSA) is an all-day campus-wide event which aims to engage the entire Ursinus community in the presentation, discussion and celebration of all forms of intellectual and creative work done by Ursinus students at all levels of their college careers. The day consists of oral presentations, poster presentations, performances, and other displays of student accomplishment.
In order to make it possible for all students and faculty to participate, regular classes are suspended for the day.
Working Group on Undergraduate Research
The Working Group on Undergraduate Research (WGUR) is a faculty subcommittee that administers funding for student research. In addition to selecting each Summer Fellows cohort, WGUR supports student research through undergraduate research funding and student travel funds.
