The NEES@Illinois site will host three REU students in the summer of 2011. The site has hosted REU students in each of the past two years, and held the 2010 Young Researcher Symposium (YRS) including poster sessions where students presented their work, and an architectural tour of Chicago's rich history in the development of tall buildings. "The students who participate in the REU program at Illinois are exposed to all aspects of the research process" says Gregory Pluta, Operations Manager and REU coordinator. "We have already seen previous REU students be highly motivated and energized about graduate school after participating in the REU program at Illinois."
