Alpha Epsilon-ABE GSA Tailgate

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 encourage any other graduate students and undergrads to attend our event as we are interested in increasing the awareness of AE at Purdue.
If you have any specific questions about the event, feel free to email Casey Hooker ( or Madalyn Alm (

Fall 2018 Philanthropy Events

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: 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!

Email Jenny Stevens with any questions!
