Purdue faculty and staff are holding campus-wide activities to raise money for the 2015 Purdue United Way Campaign.
* Enrollment Management is hosting an online silent auction from 8 a.m. Oct. 19 through 4 p.m. Oct 23 at https://discover.education.purdue.edu/auction/Default.aspx?dept=3. The individual with the highest bid by the time the auction closes will win the item. The auction site does not collect payment, and the winner will need to write a check to "United Way" for pickup of the item. Auction winners may come to the Admissions office at Schleman Hall, Room 109, to provide payment and collect their item from either Lindsey Arnold or Dana Beck.
There are eight items up for bid, and organizers will collect donations through today (Oct. 15). Those who have items they wish to donate should contact Arnold at firstname.lastname@example.org.
