What They Are Saying About USREV:

"While I always enjoyed myself in the laboratory portion of my science classes, I never really understood what 'real' research was until I participated in the USREV program.  It gave me the opportunity to jump into the real world of research so I could see if it was for me  – and it is!"
(Editor's Note:  Written by a previous USREV student who has graduated and is now employed as a full-time research technologist in the lab of Dr. John West.)

“The lab experience was great and excellent. It was far better than I expected.”

“I learned so much more than I could have imagined during by laboratory experience this summer. My mentor . . . was so knowledgeable and my co-workers were patient and very helpful to me.”

“I really enjoyed by lab experience . . .It was also nice to learn a few techniques thoroughly over the summer.”

“I was so impressed with how many opportunities were open to me while I was in Nebraska. . .Going out to lunch with my lab group was also a very nice way to get to know more about attending graduate school and UNL in particular.”

“Thank you for the amazing research experience you were able to provide this summer. I’ll be applying to graduate school this fall because of it!”
