What opportunities are there for professional development?

  • Purdue has so many exciting clubs that everyone will be able to find something they like; also, it looks great to be a leader in a club, not to mention what we can contribute with each of our experiences.
  • Get to know the head of your department - they are willing to meet with you over coffee or lunch-you don't always need to set up a formal appointment.
  • Network with other adult students that you meet, especially if they are in the same program.  It is a great way to get tips, suggestions, exchange textbooks, etc.
  • If you are going to work while in school, it is best to find a job that is related to what your degree is so you can gain relevant experience.
