Spring 2015 Newsletter
Letter from the President
Welcome to the home page of the Purdue Engineering Alumni Association. We are here to serve all graduates of the Purdue College of Engineering, now over 84,000 strong.
Our group is a branch of the Purdue Alumni Association and is governed by its own Board of Directors, all loyal Boilermaker engineers. Over the years we have focused on adding more value for our COE alumni, both professionally and socially. For example we promote employment opportunities, support of the Purdue Schools of Engineering outreach activities, arrange EAA “Tailgates” during football game weekends, and promote our Alumni Association through PASE. We also make two annual awards to recognize contributions by our alumni at the Dean's Dinner on homecoming weekend. With so many accomplished alumni, this is a difficult but gratifying task for the Board.
Our social media outreach has been very successful. Our Purdue Engineering LinkedIn site, with over 7,000 members, already ranks #1 in the nation among college of engineering alumni associations. We post many items useful for our alumni. If you haven't yet done so, I encourage you join today. Also consider joining our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter.
We have plans to further strengthen the value proposition for our alumni members. Stay tuned as we give you even more reasons to stay connected with your University.
Go Boilers! Go Purdue Engineering!
Bob Parrin, BSME '72
President, Purdue Engineering Alumni Association
