Research during the undergraduates years is significantly beneficial to students and can be an important component of their education. While some students they can do this throughout the year at their home institution, for others a summer REU experience is the best option. This talk will motivate why hosting a summer REU program is beneficial, the commitment necessary to give students a first rate experience and some of the successful strategies from various programs throughout the country.
