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 two active committees: Fundraising and Public Relations which includes Web Dev. Our weekly meetings usually feature a speaker,
or panel of speakers, to present research-related topics. We encourage you to stay
after the meetings to ask the presenter questions you may have, as well as to eat the
free food 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!
