In order to expose undergraduate students to the plethora of research opportunities available in the Department of Agricultural Leadership, Education and Communications, Assistant Professor Theresa Murphrey, Ph.D., has coordinated the ALEC Undergraduate Research Reception to take place March 19 from 1 – 2 p.m. in Room 129 of the Agriculture and Life Sciences Building.
“This reception aims to foster an opportunity for students to learn more about the research process and to expand working relationships with faculty,” Murphrey said.
Graduate Research Assistant Orry Pratt has been working with Murphrey to promote the event. He believes that the reception is a great opportunity for undergraduate students to engage with faculty members and learn about research.
“Faculty and graduate students will share their experiences in research and offer advice for those who may be considering graduate school,” Pratt said. “This event intends to assure that all undergraduate students learn about the various opportunities that exist, no matter what the class level. Everyone is invited to attend.”
Murphrey also points out that the reception will offer free food and door prizes for attendees.
