TUNL is excited to welcome a large class of undergraduate researchers for the summer.  Twelve students are participating in the NSF-sponsored TUNL REU Program which has been running continuously since 2000.  Six students are part of an inaugural class of DOE-sponsored Traineeships in Nuclear Physics being run by NCCU with mentors from all the TUNL consortium institutions.  In addition there are undergraduates from Duke, UNC, and NCSU participating in research with TUNL faculty this summer.  All of the summer researchers have the opportunity to attend lectures on nuclear and particle physics, to participate in career workshops, and to engage with graduate students and other TUNL community members through informal talks and social events.
