Undergraduate Research Club
Join the Undergraduate Research Club
Becoming a member—or leading—a registered student organization is a productive and fun way to enjoy new experiences and make friends who share your interests.
Undergraduates play key roles in the research, scholarship, and creative activity (collectively called “research”) at our top-tier research university, The WSU Undergraduate Research Club is a natural way to get the most from such opportunities at WSU.
Students from all majors, in all years of college, are welcome in the Undergraduate Research Club—because students from all majors and years in college are doing research, scholarship, and creative activities at WSU!
Did you know…that 25% of WSU seniors have conducted research with a faculty member?
As early as your freshman year, the club can help you define and find the kind of research you’d like to do with a mentor.
It’s a fact…WSU has long been a leading U.S. research university. Today it’s working to become one of the top 25 by Year 2030, thanks to Pres. Kirk Schulz and the Drive to 25 initiative. Plus the strategic plan calls for involving more undergraduates in all types of research on campus.
