- Ask a professor to supervise a research project, and turn it into a senior thesis.
- Make it a habit to attend the talks in our Undergraduate Math Seminar (M 300).

- Participate in an REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) next summer. Applications are usually due in February. REUs often pay all expenses plus a generous stipend.

- What about working as a tutor in the Math Learning Center?
- Attend a math conference. Don't forget to apply for travel support from the math department.
- Participate in a semester or summer program for math majors at another university.
- Spend a semester or two somewhere else in the US via the National Student Exchange (maybe in Hawaii?). This does not have to be more expensive than studying at UM: you can choose if you pay tuition at UM or at the host institution. Studying abroad is also an option!
