Nine Illinois Nuclear Physics Undergraduates presented their work at the Conference Experience for Undergraduates program as part of the American Physical Society Division of Nuclear Physics Fall Meeting held October 27-30 in New Orleans.  The students presented a poster or a talk on their own research and attended dedicated talks designed to give them a broader understanding of topics in nuclear physics and increase their awareness of graduate programs in nuclear physics.
