Abstract/ Summary

We all know the drill: everyday we open our university email to and an abundance of irrelevant requests and notices. Maybe there’s some noteworthy anxiety-inducing or serotonin-boosting message from a professor about grades, rescheduling, or the all-hailed cancellation. My inbox remains clouded by a mess of announcements that I don’t even bother to open before I hit delete (mostly credited to an online shopping addiction, but that’s besides the point). However, there might be a diamond in the rough that you’re missing: student research.
