Research presentations featured UCSC students in a range of disciplines and other students who came to UCSC for summer research opportunities.

A diverse crowd of undergraduate researchers gathered in the Engineering Courtyard on August 15 to present the results of their summer research projects. They included UC Santa Cruz students doing research in a broad range of disciplines, from bioengineering and physics to linguistics and psychology. The event also included students from other universities around the country who came to UC Santa Cruz for summer experiences in undergraduate research.

It was standing room only at the grand opening of our new home at 2300 Delaware, hopefully a sign of more exciting milestones to come. 🎉 🎉🎉 ... See MoreSee Less
