Hooty Hoo's Doing Research?

Follow along as the Office of Research highlights undergraduate students engaged in research through the First-Year Scholars Program

Each year, the Office of Undergraduate Research at Kennesaw State University sponsors the First-Year Scholars Program, which pairs faculty/postdoctoral researcher mentors with first-year students to engage in a year-long research project. The goal of this program is to introduce first-year students to the undergraduate research experience.

The students serve as apprentices and are integrated into the research programs of their Primary Investigator (PI), learning from both the PI and peers. This program helps students gain early research experience, which sets them on a path for future success.
