In addition to completing Physics 499, all students are encouraged to participate in undergraduate research either with the faculty here or at an internship off-campus. Students who are interested in contributing to the Department's research agendas should meet with the faculty and participate as Laboratory Shadows. Lab Shadows are informally assigned to current senior research students who are charged with exposing the Shadows to the work and even with providing some training. Any student of any year classification may participate.
