In this video Kyle Scott, a recent graduate of the College of Natural Sciences, talks about how the University's "Research Advantage" has given him an edge in both his education and future.

A new report from the University's Division of Student Affairs shows that students who are more engaged in research activities have higher grade point averages (GPAs), are more likely to graduate within four years and have plans to attend graduate school. About 89 percent of all undergraduate students and 94 percent of seniors participate in some type of research while at The University of Texas at Austin. Based on a survey of 13,120 undergraduates, the study provides early evidence that students involved in healthy out of classroom activities have higher GPAs and graduate on time. The analysis defies previous perceptions that students who are more socially engaged may take longer to graduate.

Kyle is currently a master's degree candidate in Human Genetics at Tulane University School of Medicine.
