The URS program is one of many great ways to be involved in research/creative work on the UW-Madison campus. Here are others: 

Undergraduate Symposium

The annual Undergraduate Symposium showcases undergraduate creativity, achievement, research, service-learning and community-based research from all areas of study at UW-Madison including the humanities, arts, biological sciences, physical sciences, social sciences, and computer data and information sciences. At the end of the spring semester, all URS Scholars are required to participate in the campus-wide Undergraduate Symposium where they formally present their work. Each Scholar must submit a mentor-approved research or creative work abstract to be accepted into the symposium.
