2008 Undergraduate Research Symposium

Natalia AzarovaOn Friday, September 26, 2008, the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium, organized by the URECA (Undergraduate Research and Creative Activities) Center, was held at Wake Forest University. Many departments within the university took part in the event highlighting the diverse research opportunities at WFU.
