Happy Birthday, CUR! I'm so thankful for all the opportunities that it created for me during undergrad, which prepared me for my new journey as an MD/PhD student. And thanks as well to Dr. Donnelly's kind mentorship and the friends that I made through involvement with the organization. Here's to another 10 years of fostering the careers of young minds at UF.

Happy Birthday to the best organization on campus! It is amazing how far CUR has come in 10 years, and I cant wait to see where it will be in another 10. The services CUR offers are one of UF's greatest assets and I am so grateful for the lessons Dr. Donnelly and Mrs. Moses have taught me as mentors. CUR gave me the opportunity to grow as a researcher through scholarships, travel funding, presentation opportunities, and summer research programs and it also gave me the opportunity to grow as a leader in CURBS. Those experiences have undoubtedly shaped me into the researcher and leader that I am today. Here's to another 10 years, CUR! Go Gators, Go Research!

Happy anniversary CUR! Dr.Donnelly was an incredible mentor to me throughout my 4 years at UF! Her support, kindness, insight, and humor brings such joy! I am so grateful to have had this resource and her guidance. After graduating, I miss being able to drop by her office and chat but I know that sheโ€™ll continue to have an incredible impact on the lives of countless more students! Thank you for all you do!

Dr. Donnelly and CUR's mentorship and support were a lifeline that provided the kind of support and mentorship that you could only dream of. The opportunities, experiences, and relationships that grew out of CUR and CURBS provided a lasting impact on my career. They gave me the skills to succeed not only in STEM and research, but also in my career as an attorney!

Happy Anniversary!! My involvement with CUR was by far the most influential experience I had during my undergraduate time at UF. I am forever thankful for allowing me to grow as a leader and introducing me to so many amazing people. Dr. Donnelly is an absolutely incredible mentor! Without her guidance, I would not be the student or person I am today. Go Gators, Go Research!

CUR and Anne Donnelly looked out for my well being better than any advisor or professor ever did. They were like a family away from home. Graduating from UF would have been much more difficult if I wasnโ€™t apart of CUR and I am grateful for the people I met as well as the experiences made.

Thank you CUR & CURBS for providing my favorite and most memorable experience at UF. Getting involved in research, presenting at CUR symposia, and utilizing CUR resources opened my eyes to research as a career and prepared me to become a capable scientist in industry. Thank you to everyone in CURBS as well for the welcoming community of bright minded individuals who are going to change the world. We accomplished so many great feats together and had such a blast in doing so. Go gators, go research forever

The Center for Undergraduate Research allowed me the opportunity to travel abroad to conduct research and to present research posters on campus and around Florida. I am thankful to all who have created these opportunities for me to have such an enriching undergraduate research experience.

Because of CUR today I am able to pursue a career in academia. Without CUR's support, I wouldn't have been able to engage in the meaningful undergraduate research that led to obtaining both an NSF graduate research fellowship and a GAANN fellowship. These two fellowships guaranteed I could go to the graduate school of my choice without worrying about financial hardship.
