For the serious student

For those considering graduate school, aside from taking as much mathematics as possible, you might want to apply to a Research Experiences for Undergraduates program or for the Budapest Semesters in Mathematics program.

Other links

Both the American Mathematical Society and the Mathematical Association of America have extensive web pages, as does the Math Archives. There are also quite a few mathematical links listed through the JMU Library. For general articles about academia, try the Chronicle of Higher Education.
