Many Cornell undergraduates choose to participate in some form of research either during the school year with EAS faculty or as interns during the summer. Through the university, research activity can be used to earn academic credits and to satisfy an honors distinction at graduation, or be conducted for pay. Recently, students have presented their research projects at the American Meteorological Society Annual Meeting, the Great Lakes Operational Meteorology Workshop, and the Northeastern Storm Conference.
