“This experience matured my perspective on science, academia, and research significantly and beneficially- although simply living in New Orleans would have been a dream come true on its own as well.”

“The diversity of students participating in the SMART REU meant that I got to meet people from places and with backgrounds I’d never have encountered otherwise. I grew as a scientist because of this mind-broadening experience, and as a person as well.”
