UURAF 2018

The 20th annual University Undergraduate Research and Arts Forum (UURAF) will take place on Friday, April 13th at the MSU Union from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. UURAF provides Michigan State undergraduate students with an opportunity to showcase their scholarship and creative activity. Held each spring in the MSU Union, UURAF brings together an intellectual community of highly motivated students to share their work with faculty, peers, and external audiences. UURAF provides a unique educational opportunity for aspiring researchers. MSU undergraduates gain experience in presenting their research, answer questions about their work from audience members and guests, and receive constructive feedback from judges.
