Welcome to the Freshman Fellowship Program

Science lab

The academic year is winding down, and our Freshman Fellows have logged over 1,700 hours doing research so far! This year, 25 fellows are working with faculty mentors in the following academic departments:

Education, The Seaborg Science Center, Nursing, Clinical Lab Sciences, Health and Human Performance, Physics, Engineering Technology, Political Science, History, Psychology, Biology, Chemistry, and Earth, Environmental and Geographical Science.

Many thanks to our faculty mentors for lending their time and expertise to provide this experience for incoming freshman!
