Access Alum

A valuable opportunity for women engineering students to network with our alumni & corporate representatives in an informal setting!

WIEP is excited to offer you this opportunity to have informal chats with our alumnae as they visit campus.  You can drop by at your convenience during the time range listed below to connect with our alumnae, enjoy a snack, and meet other program participants including both undergraduate and graduate participants.  We know you will benefit greatly from these sessions. (NOTE: locations for these events will be sent by email to WIEP mentoring program participants).

As these are designed to be informal, please come as you are (no need to dress up).  On occasion, alumnae may indicate that they are interested in recruiting for their company, and in those cases, we will indicate in our emails and/or newsletters to participants if the visiting alumnae are interested in accepting resumes.

In case you are uncertain as to what to ask our guests, review this list of sample questions to get you thinking!

To recommend an alum for future events contact Cathy Deno (denoc@purdue.edu).
