Student Research

Undergraduate Research

One of the valuable experiences available to Honors students is the opportunity to learn how to do original research in their courses. More, our students participate in undergraduate research conferences. Every Saddleback student who has ever attended one -- whether as a presenter, a moderator, or "just" an audience member -- has said it was rewarding and exciting (and fun).
