The Honors College Office of Undergraduate Research and Scholarship is an excellent resource to help you find interesting projects happening on campus as well as at the state, national and international levels.  Conducting research, whether it is for an independent project you have developed or part of a professor's larger research project, is one of the greatest endeavors a students can undertake.  Honors students have researched everything from causes of asthma to nonlinear dynamics to global warming.  See more by reading students' Thesis Project titles
