Vandals in Focus 2016

About Vandals in Focus 

The University of Idaho offers undergraduates exceptional opportunities to engage in research, scholarly work and creative activities. Each semester, students representing all disciplines at UI take advantage of these opportunities and work on faculty-mentored projects. 

Through Vandals in Focus, the Office of Undergraduate Research is proud to showcase a sampling of these student projects selected from each college at UI. 

I encourage current and future UI undergraduates to visit the Office of Undergraduate Research to learn more about getting involved in faculty-mentored projects. Participating in undergraduate research will enrich your academic experience and expand your horizons — get involved!

About the Vandals in Focus Team

Vandals in Focus isn’t just about student projects — it is a student project. A team of 13 student writers and photographers produced the stories within, as well as exclusive online pieces.

The Vandals in Focus team brings together students from a diversity of majors, backgrounds, experience levels and interests. Brief biographies of the students are included with their work. 

Their experience, and the experiences of the students they interviewed and photographed, represent just a few of the possibilities for hands-on creative activity, scholarship and research at the University of Idaho.
