Listen to what students have to say about their undergraduate research experiences!

Welcome to the GeoCUR collection of podcasts!  These are audio recordings of undergraduate students made at various professional conferences.  The student researchers discuss a wide range of topics, from getting the confidence to begin undergraduate research, to the joys and frustrations of doing the research, to the preparation for and intimidation of presenting at a conference.  All interviewed students completed their undergraduate research under the mentorship of a faculty member from the Geoscience Division of the Undergraduate Research.  For more information about GeoCUR, please visit our GeoCUR website.  For information about CUR, please visit the organization website.

All podcasts were recorded and edited by Laura Guertin, GeoCUR Councilor. All students gave permission to be recorded and to have their completed podcasts disseminated through this website.
