What services are available to help me be more efficient and effective?

  • Familiarize yourself with the services available to students and make sure to use them. An A-Z Index is found in the upper right hand corner of the Purdue Home Page.
  • The library website http://www.lib.purdue.edu/ is great for adult students who don't have time to spend in the library.  Search library database of journal articles, sometimes the entire article is on line.
  • Use the Writing Lab HEAV226.  It's free.  Staff will not redo a paper for you, but they give many helpful suggestions.  They notify a professor when you've been in-that demonstrates to the professor you are striving for a good paper and seeking knowledge outside of the classroom. 
  • Make a habit of collecting business cards when you visit offices on campus. The will make it easier to make contact in the future.
