Thank you for your willingness to contribute to ABE!
Please see below for professional development opportunities for grad students:
(1) there is a great new workshop this semester called “Career Fair 101” for graduate students who may not have attended career fairs in the past and are not sure if or how to to attend one,
(2) students that register for the fair on the CCO website will be invited to the professional networking event the evening before the fair!
Are you interested in participating in our sixth annual Graduate Industrial Research Symposium?
Then come to our callout on December 11, 12:00PM-1PM in LILY G401. There will be free food!
Our next Symposium will be March 25, 2019. Develop your leadership and management skills by volunteering to chair one of our Symposium committees! We are looking for grad students interested in being marketing, 3MT, session, and poster chairs.
This year, our departmental Symposium will partner with Purdue’s 150 Years of Giant Leaps and other departments on campus so this will be an excellent opportunity to meet new people. The theme will be Sustainability.
Time commitment: 1-2 hours per week. Typically, we will have biweekly-weekly meetings during the Spring semester.
The mission and goals of our Symposium can be found here.
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 .
Join ABE GSA to know more about your mates! Bingo and food will be provided. All Purdue Graduate Students are welcome, especially join if you are visiting scholars.

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.
Here’s a survey!
It seriously can be done in one minute or less, and it would really
help us know how we can help you help other people. Please take it!
