Schedule + Events

URSI holds a weekly Thursday lunch session from 12-1:30pm that is mandatory for all URSI students and includes workshops, lab tours of URSI labs/research sites, and research talks by students. All URSI students must attend the Thursday meetings. In addition there are a variety of optional workshops held at other times. These workshops often require that you apply to participate, so please check regularly to look for the application form here.  

Every Tuesday evening at 5pm in the BLS Atrium we will provide either dinner or ice cream.  Although this is not required, we encourage you to join us along with your faculty mentor!
