About

The Journal

We are a student-run, non-technical research journal. Our mission is to build connections between undergraduate students, graduate students, and the public, as well as among the different academic disciplines, through the publication of non-technical articles in all fields of research. We aim to tap student creativity and effort in all academic disciplines through a peer-edited, faculty-reviewed electronic and print publication. We hope to inspire interest in research in the student body, faculty, and the campus community.


It should be a normal part of an undergraduate’s experience to venture into new fields of study and make interdisciplinary linkages … (and) to integrate formal studies with co-curricular interests.

– President’s Commission on the Undergraduate Experience
