This RAP is like a cross between the two:
Like Topic RAPs, this RAP is intended to bring together students who have a common interest - in this case the broad topic of science.

Different than Topic RAPs, this RAP does NOT include a seminar class.
This RAP is open to students in any major or undeclared.
When you join this RAP you will...
