Welcome to the official SURGe website.
SURGe is a student organization at the University of Texas at Austin that works to foster a cohesive undergraduate research community. To this end, we are a network of individual students, some currently working in researching labs and some not, who meet to discuss and promote involvement in scientific research on campus.
The group’s requirements are minimal: we want you to attend meetings and actively participate as best as you can. We currently have three active committees: Fundraising, Public Relations, and Web Dev.
Our weekly meetings usually feature a speaker,or panel of speakers, to present research-related topics. We currently meet in Wel 3.260 on Thursdays from 5-6:15 pm. We encourage you to stay after the meetings to ask the presenter questions you may have, as well as to eat the free pizza we provide weekly and maybe have a chat with an officer. Start your networking with us! We also perform volunteer opportunities on campus and host research shadowing opportunities. Like all organizations, SURGe is entirely what you make of it!
And you want to know the best part about us? SURGe membership is absolutely FREE! There are no prerequisites, nor is prior laboratory experience a necessity. Students of all majors and levels are welcome to join and contribute. On behalf of all of us in SURGe:
Welcome! And we look forward to meeting you!
