Did you know there is a club for students like you? The Council for Scholarship and Inquiry (CSI) at FAU is a student organization which is open to all FAU students in any department. In CSI, undergraduate researchers meet to:
- share their common experiences
- brainstorm how to overcome research-related hurdles
- learn about finding sources
- help each other turn the research experience into even bigger professional opportunities.
In addition, there are great leadership positions within this organization that will give you leadership experience that grad schools and future employers expect. To join, or just get more information, please visit the CSI website HERE and/or contact CSI President, Patricia Le at FAUCSI@gmail.com
