Last Updated: April 10, 2014

NOTE! There is a Facebook group called National Weather Center REU Program. Membership is open to past REU students, the students from similar programs who joined us for all our activities, and our mentors. It is not a very active group, but it allows past participants to directly connect to each other if they wish. I think it is especially cool when people connect across years of the program. Great networking happens!
