This coming Monday, March 4th, Dr. Linda Hankins will address us all on practical work/life balance. So, if you’re feeling a bit stressed
(and let’s be honest, who isn’t?), come to Lilly 3410 from 12:30-1:30

It is the pleasure of the Professional Development Chairs to invite
you to a Professional Development Seminar tomorrow, from 11:30 – 12:30, in Lilly 3118. The speaker will be ABE’s own Dr. Porterfield,
who will speak on Science Policy, framed by his own experience as a
scientist with NASA. It’s bound to be a fun-filled, information packed seminar, and we can’t wait to see all of you there! A free lunch will be provided.
This Sunday (Feb 3rd) we will be gathering together to watch the Super Bowl at “The Palace” (122 N 3rd Street, Lafayette) which is a large apartment on the top floor directly above Chumley’s. Kick-off for the game is at 6:30 pm, so you can arrive as early as 6 pm and watch the game. ABE GSA will provide snacks (chips, popcorn, etc.), drinks (soda, water) and potentially some pizzas.
Several prospective students will be visiting Purdue to learn more about our program and to see if it is the right fit for them. For the past six years, ABE has offered the option of staying with a current grad student from our department to these visiting students, and it has been very successful.
This year, we need your help again! And we need it NOW!!!
If you are able to volunteer to host a prospective student on the nights of February 7 and 8, please follow the link below to fill out the survey. Please sign up by February 1st so that we have time to pair you with a student.
