About WE Link
We are dedicated to reaching out to prospective women engineers and helping them link with Purdue and current undergraduate students. These students can provide a personal link to answer questions about Purdue, engineering, and the transition to college by sharing their own experiences. Since 1991, our program has seen strong success in recruitment and we have high hopes for the future. If you have any questions about the WE Link program, you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
