Many of our students get engaged in research experiences during their time at Ashland University, and these activities have, for many years, been a hallmark of our department. Some students get involved in the lab as early as their freshman year, allowing them to accumulate a good deal of experience by the time they graduate. Considering that the vast majority of our students who successfully gain admittance to graduate school have these experiences in common, those students who want to take the 'next step' in their academic career should consider the opportunities that are in front of them.

The article provides insight from Mitchell Metzger and Gary Lewandowski (who gave a talk at our campus a few years ago). Enjoy!
