SSRF Alumni Spotlight
The Baylor Summer Science Research for Incoming Freshman program served as a great introduction to Baylor University and all that it has to offer. It showed me the vast research opportunities at Baylor, helped me lay a foundation for the classes that I was about to take, and allowed me to form some meaningful relationships with Baylor faculty and other students.
SSRF gave me an opportunity to become involved in research and gain valuable lab experience before even starting at Baylor. I now volunteer weekly in the lab I was involved in over the summer. Additionally, I was able to become good friends with the other students in the program.
The Baylor University Summer Science Research for Incoming Freshman program is a great way to get a head start on research, learn a vast wealth of information about various fields of science, and experience first-hand how academic research works. The weekly seminars are interesting and you'll make like-minded friends while getting acclimated to the University and Waco before starting school in the fall.
