[35.05U] Undergraduate Research at Liberal Arts Colleges

R. H. Kramer (Swarthmore College)

I am a senior at Swarthmore College majoring in Astrophysics. My undergraduate research experience comprises a summer internship with Jay Pasachoff at Williams College under the Keck Northeast Astronomy Consortium's summer exchange program where I had the opportunity to join the Williams College 2001 eclipse expedition to Zambia, and over a year, now, of research with Swarthmore faculty member David Cohen (the results of which are the subject of our poster at this meeting). I will give an overview of my experience as an undergraduate researcher, discuss what parts of the experience I have found productive and where I have been frustrated, and try to identify to what extent my conclusion are generally applicable.
