Our undergraduate students are very accomplished and participate in numerous activities and extracurricular activities. They participate in research activities, and present their work at national and international Meetings; and also co-author refereed journal publications. We highlight a few accomplishments in this page, and by no means is this is a complete and exhaustive list.
