"It was an amazing experience at an amazing school! The faculty and staff were there every single step of the way, from the weeks leading up to the program to even a year after it ended."

“My summer in the BUCKEYE REU was probably my favorite summer yet. I learned so many new lab techniques and how to apply them in an area of research I hadn’t experienced before and got to showcase my work at the end with a presentation and poster. Plus, the 10 of us in our group got really close and got to do a lot of fun activities around Columbus when we weren’t in lab! Ohio State took great care of us and gave us a lot of information about graduate school as well. I’m now pursuing my PhD, which I hadn’t previously considered! Thanks Ohio State.”

“Ohio State’s BUCKEYE REU was a fun, educational and transformative experience. I learned to be an independent researcher alongside other students who quickly became my close friends. The Ohio State campus is gorgeous and provides plenty of fun activities to do outside of your research".

"Participating in the Buckeye REU was one of the best decisions I made for my research career. The 10 week program allowed me to immerse myself in research and better understand what life would be like as a grad student. The collaborative environment in lab was very encouraging and allowed me to grow as a scientist. The workshops we attended were very helpful and allowed me to put together the best application possible for grad school. Outside of the lab, Columbus is a great city to explore and create lifelong memories."
