Shadower Guidelines

By applying for a research shadowing experience, you agree to the below guidelines and agree to adhere to any instructions or expectations of the research group you are visiting.  We want these experiences to be fun and informative for everyone involved.


  • Follow any and all instructions given by the Research Leader before, or during the shadowing experience. 
  • Arrive at the designated meeting point five (5) minutes before the start of your scheduled shadowing experience. You should not enter the research space until invited by your Research Leader. 
  • Complete any pre-reading or brief training required to enter the research space. If this pre-training is required, your Research Leader will explain what is needed, before the day of your shadowing experience.
  • Do not touch anything in the research space unless given permission and instructions by the Research Leader.
  • Ask any questions you have about the research topic, research process, or how you might get involved in a research experience at OSU.
