2007 summer students at Green Bank: Left to right are Jonathan Landon, Danielle Holstine, Ilene Mitchell, Steven Janowiecki, Courtney Epstein, Katie Chynoweth and Sophia Brunner.

The 2008 summer student class should have reported to their assigned NRAO sites. The 2008 class consists of 23 students: 16 undergraduate students supported by the National Science Foundations "Research Experience for Undergraduates" (REU) program; and 7 graduating seniors or graduate students supported by the NRAO Graduate or Undergraduate Summer Student program. Eight students are assigned to Socorro, eleven to Charlottesville, and four to Green Bank. These 23 students were chosen from 109 applications.

During their 10-12 week summer internship, the students will work with an NRAO mentor on a project in the mentors area of expertise. Besides their summer research projects, the students will attend a lecture series and go on field trips to other observatories. Students assigned to Socorro will collaborate on a VLA or VLBA observational project, while students assigned to Green Bank or Charlottesville will conduct observing projects with the GBT.

The accompanying table lists the names and schools of all 2008 summer students, together with their NRAO mentor, site, and project title.
