Student Undergraduate Research Festival


The Student Undergraduate Research Festival (SURF) is an annual celebration of individual and team research projects by students during their academic careers at Carroll College. Students are encouraged to undertake a research project in an area in which they have necessary background, are currently pursuing their major and/or even outside of their major during their academic career at Carroll. During the festival event in April, students will provide a formal presentation to fellow peers, faculty members and Carroll College guests on their research project(s). Students interested in participating in a research project and/or participating in SURF should begin exploring areas of research interest and planning as early as possible.  Students are encouraged to attend the various presentations during the festival to help celebrate the Carroll students’ research.
