CSC Day Spotlight

Each CSC Day, the Undergraduate Research Program highlights the research and creative work of a select number of exceptional student projects as part of our CSC Day Spotlight! To be considered for the spotlight, students must be nominated, register to present their work at CSC Day, and submit a short reflection on their research experience. 

Spotlight recipients are selected on the basis of having a timely project that exceed expectations, not only in the quality of the research or creative work, but also in their growth as scholars in their field.
