Welcome to the NURJ Online Volume 7! This edition is a collection of excellent undergraduate research conducted this past summer. We are honored to showcase these authors who have a variety of majors and have submitted research that are extensions of their own personal interests. Each author has their own biography and Q&A section to give you insight behind the scenes of who they are as academic scholars and where their research interests stem from. Following these pieces are the author’s individual pieces which have been published for your reading pleasure.
