2019 ABE Recruitment Weekend-Hosts Needed!

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.

Mentoring Roundtable with Dr. Engelberth

2019 ABE Recruitment Weekend Poster Session!

On Thursday, February 7th ABE will host prospective students. As part of the events, we will hold a short Research Showcase Poster Session where the prospective students, current students, and faculty will be able to interact with and learn about some of the research efforts in our department. We are looking for about 30 current graduate students to present posters.  Ideally, we want posters that have already been printed as this event is not intended to add more work.  We would like to save that effort and present at the GSA symposium in March.  If you have a poster that is yearning to be shared again, we need you!  You will have the opportunity to make an impact on the prospective students’ impressions of the department and hopefully help them choose Purdue ABE!
The Research Showcase Poster Session will be held on February 7th from 5:30 – 6:30 PM in the PMU South Ballroom.  Dinner will be served immediately after and we encourage you to stay for dinner.
If you are willing to participate, please fill out this survey by February 1st.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact Dr. Abby Engelberth aengelbe@purdue.edu.

Thank you for your willingness to contribute to ABE!

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 (hookerc@purdue.edu) or Madalyn Alm (malm@purdue.edu)
