When you hear the phrase “research paper”, what is your first response? Are you intimidated, anxious, or excited?
One thing that I recommend for everyone is doing some research in college. No, not research papers or anything that you may not want to do! When I say research, I am talking about all stages of research. From gathering data to proofreading articles—these are all steps of research. Wash U, as you may already know, has a strong emphasis on research. Whether you are a science major or an International Studies major like me, there is always some research project for you! Below, I discuss two research opportunities that I have had so far on campus.
