    UROC Student Scholar Creed

    The UROC Scholar community is for high-achieving, motivated students who want to prepare for and excel in graduate school. Scholars take their academic work seriously, work hard to maintain good grades, and are actively engaged in faculty-mentored research opportunities. UROC Scholars are expected to represent the ideals of academic excellence by achieving to the best of their abilities and engaging in enriching academic and professional experiences throughout their undergraduate careers.
