(with Diane Husic, Ph.D., President, CUR)
Admission officers may be able to tell you about research opportunities that are available on a campus you are considering. Also, your campus may have an office of undergraduate research. If so, that may be the best place to once you have matriculated as a student. If your college does not have an undergraduate research office, you may wish to check with the department chair of the discipline you are interested in and he/she may be able to direct you to a specific professor. Your academic advisor should also be able to assist you in finding a mentor, or a professor that you have for class can point you in the right direction.
