Social Sciences poster winner Briana Riley
Thanks to the efforts of Rutgers graduate students, staff, and corporate judges, the Aresty Research Center evaluates the poster presentations at our annual Undergraduate Research Symposium. This year the top posters were chosen from four broad categories: Humanities, Social Sciences, Digital, and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). We have awarded three prizes in STEM this year due to the high quality and excellent work of the students. After tallying up all of the scores, we’re excited to announce our winners for 2015.

The Aresty Center is celebrating 10 years of Undergraduate Research. To help celebrate we've created a new report highlighting our programs and accomplishments of the last 10 years. We look foward to continued growth as we serve the Rutgers community as the office of undergraduate research.

This past year we have helped more than 50 students attend conferences and meetings around the country and abroad. Below is a list of conferences attended:

On January 29, from 4:30-6:30PM, we invite our faculty to come celebrate their accomplishments and all they do for Aresty at the Zimmerli Art Museum. Co-hosted by the Byrne Seminars, we take this moment to say "thank you" to our faculty supporters. None of our growth could happen without our faculty, who represent the key lever to providing students with the research opportunities they need to succeed across disciplines. Our growth reveals both the demand among Rutgers undergraduates... Continued
