On November 28th at 8:30-9:45am, PGSG will be hosting the Next Generation Scholars Program where they will bring high school students and have them listen to graduate and undergraduates present their posters. If students sign up, they will not only get free breakfast and a t-shirt, but also have their poster printed for free.
If someone has a poster and would like to get more practice, they are more than welcome to sign up as well. I know it’s a bit early in the day, but K-12 outreach is a great service component that could be added to a CV, and is a good opportunity to practice public speaking. If y’all could get the word out about this, that would be great. Sign up link is: bit.ly/2Phkret .
Alpha Epsilon is planning on having a tailgate event with the goal of providing undergraduate students a casual and social environment where they would be able to discuss any questions they may have about graduate school. We are hoping this will be orthogonal to many of the other graduate school Q & A events at Purdue.
We are planning on having this even prior to the start of the Purdue Wisconsin football game on November 17th from 1:30-3:30PM in the CoRec parking Lot O.
Please let us know if you will be attending. Use the link below to sign up.
This Saturday (10/27) we will be having our annual Fall Cookout from 3pm-6pm. ABE GSA will be covering the cost of food (burgers, hot dogs, etc.) and drinks.
If you think that you may be going or may need help finding transportation to the cookout then please a few seconds to fill out this short survey (https://goo.gl/forms/kH62y6c54wTgk6of1). This is a great chance to get to hangout with the rest of our graduate students and their families. We hope to see you there!!!!

Here are the upcoming philanthropy events that GSA will be hosting! We’ve got lots of good things coming up this semester and we need your help! More details will follow about each of them.
Tuesday October 30th, 3-4 pm: Hanna Community Center (in
Lafayette); helping kids with homework (2000 Elmwood Avenue,
Lafayette, about a ten minute drive from campus)
This is a great opportunity to help inspire kids to want to keep
learning! It sounds like they would love all the help they can get, so
we may be doing more with them in the future. Look for more details .
Saturday November 10th, 9-2pm: Purdue Winterization (meet at
Purdue); prepping yards in the community for winter. See details here: https://www.purduewinterization.org/ We will be helping local residents clean up their yards to prepare for the winter. Registration for our group is now open! If you want to join, click “Volunteer Registration” and select ABE GSA when asked about your group. We’ll be doing the first wave, so come at 8 am if you want breakfast (I think you can come a little later if you don’t care) and they do serve lunch. Also, we meet on-campus and go from there so don’t worry about rides.
November 1-December 8: Toy drive! Give a child a toy for
Christmas! Collection spots will be set up around departmental areas.
Please consider attending the Midwest Graduate School Summit, a one day graduate school exposition held October 27 in Stewart Center.
For students attending the FREE Graduate School Fair only, swipe your Purdue ID in the hallway outside of STEW 302 to receive a name tag with time stamped before entering the fair. When exiting the fair, go to the Purdue student club checkout table (STEW 310) and provide your Purdue ID (another Purdue ID swipe needed) and the name of your club. Students need to stay at least 30 minutes.
Each Purdue club sending at least 10 students will receive a $125 donation. The Purdue club sending the most students to the Midwest Summit will receive a prize of $250. This is in addition to the $125.
The annual Fall Blitz professional development event hosted by Purdue Graduate School occurs on October 8th & 9th (over Fall Break). There are a variety of workshops for graduate students on communication, leadership, diversity and more! (see attached flyers).
