Celebrating undergraduate research


The goal of DREAMS is to share and celebrate the varied projects of JHU’s undergraduate students. With our undergraduates involved in such varied research and creative opportunities, DREAMS provides the perfect venue to celebrate and share these projects with the Hopkins community, family and friends. DREAMS happens every spring on the first Friday of the Homewood Alumni Weekend showcasing the current research, scholarly and creative endeavors of our exceptional Hopkins undergraduate students. Everyone should plan to attend!

What is DREAMS?

DREAMS is an annual event celebrating undergraduate research, scholarly and creative projects in all forms undertaken by Hopkins undergraduate students in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences, the Peabody Institute, and the Whiting School of Engineering.

Who can present at DREAMS?

Hopkins undergraduate students researching with faculty, staff and other students in departments, programs, centers, institutes and communities across Hopkins and beyond are encouraged to present.

Did you –

  • Travel to a great study abroad experience?
  • Work at an amazing internship?
  • Participate in an unbelievable summer REU?
  • Complete an honors or senior capstone project?
  • Work on a group research or design project?
  • Have a cool research project or experience?
  • Create a piece of music, film, art or written work?
  • Start developing a new business or product?
  • Help on an inspiring community service project?

Then you can present at DREAMS!

Is DREAMS only a poster session?

No, HOUR staff will work with each undergraduate to find the best format to present their project. The vast majority of presenters will utilize posters to convey their projects, but we have also had demonstrations, films and performances. Reach out to us at to discuss the best way to share your project.

Are group projects accepted to present?

Group projects are great! Each member of the group should register to present, but be sure to use the exact same title and note other members of the group. This will allow is to credit each of you in the event program, while still designating you as a group project. All group members are welcome to present, even taking shifts throughout the day. If only one member is available to present for the group, that is also fine. Only those planning to participate in DREAMS should register.

Who can attend DREAMS?


DREAMS is attended by

  • the president and provost,
  • deans and other university officials,
  • alumni back visiting the campus for alumni weekend,
  • faculty and staff,
  • postdocs and grad students,
  • other undergraduates, whether they are presenting or not,
  • family and friends,
  • the Hopkins community at large.

If you are an undergraduate and you do not currently have a project to present, you should attend. DREAMS is a great opportunity to network with other students and faculty, get ideas for projects you might like to get involved in, and learn about faculty, labs and areas that regularly work with undergraduates.

What is the deadline to register to present at DREAMS?
