Undergraduate Research

Nose in the books? yep. that’s college. but what about your hands? now that’s valpo.

We take you beyond study hall and engage you in ways you can feel, see, and hear. From activities like robotic football* (it’s just like “human” football, only with student-built ’bots) to student media (we have our own newspaper, radio, and TV stations), you’ll find your niche. That’s not to mention undergraduate research opportunities in your field of choice (aka: the best prep for grad school and a professional career).

*P.S. Robots aren’t the only athletes on Valpo’s campus … we have 21 Division I Athletics programs and 25+ intramural events each year.

Real life experiences

I’ve had countless opportunities with the physics and astronomy department. I’ve been involved in the department since my sophomore year — I was a lab aid and a summer intern, and I’ve been doing outreach for astronomy. I knew Valpo could provide me with the opportunity to compete in big-school athletics while still giving me the small-school value of these great opportunities.
