 Bailey Library - Rock Solid Research 



Getting Started

Do one or more of the following statements apply to YOU?

  • Have you learned something in one of your classes that you would like to know more about?
  • Do you have an idea, thought, question, or activity that you would like to learn more about?
  • Do you have a passion to make your education a meaningful experience that goes beyond what you do in the classroom everyday?
  • Are you willing to put in some long hours and face challenges that take you outside of your comfort-zone for the ultimate goal of discovery and self-learning?
  • Are you interested in making yourself more marketable upon graduation?
  • Are you interested in pursuing graduate school?

If you answered “YES” to one or more of the aforementioned statements, then perhaps YOU should consider getting involved in a student-faculty research project or student-faculty creative activity.

Three Simple Steps for Getting Started

  • Talk to a faculty member in your area of interest. Explain your desire to work with the faculty member in potentially getting his/her help in designing a research study.
  • Speak with your discipline’s librarian and try to get as much information about your topic area as possible.
  • Speak to the student liaison from the Center for Student Research, Scholarship and Creative Activity for additional information and helpful tips.
