Celebrate Undergraduate Research and Creativity (CURC)
Throughout the year, Colorado State University recognizes and honors the achievements of students in the areas of research and creativity. Students are invited to participate in a variety of events that will provide them an opportunity to showcase what they have learned through their research and creative activities.
Each year, events culminate with the CURC Showcase in April. The showcase features outstanding performers and award winners from all disciplines. Following the Showcase, an awards ceremony recognizes all participants and honored awards winners from the various events.
Microbiology Undergraduate participation at CURC is among the highest at the University.
