Dynamic Resources for Pre-Professional Students

The new Pre-Professional Advising Office is running at full-speed, open to speak to students interested in preparing for careers in medicine, allied health, law, and veterinary medicine!  Their new website is in the works, but until then check out their current website, packed with lots of information.  We particularly recommend Current Students > Career Information, Current Students > General Information, or Links > Professional Organizations to our exploring students.  Freshman year is the ideal time to begin researching professional school requirements, student club, and professional organizations!

Students who are interested in staying in the Pre-Professional know should definately sign up for the Pre-Professional Listserv.  There is also a list of Upcoming Pre-Professional Events (including the IU Law Bus Trip).  Not all events will hold much interest for the freshman or sophomore, but it can offer them a timetable of what to expect when they’re juniors and seniors!

CODO meeting information for Engineering Students

All soon-to-be Engineering students who are CODO-eligible are required to attend a CODO meeting this semester.  The rules have changed a good deal over this last semester as the College of Engineering gears up to expand its numbers in response to the new Purdue Moves Initiative.  Also, we strongly encourage these students to pay very close attention to a change in the CODO-in procedure, which include new, shorter deadlines for CODO paper submission.

The link to sign up for a CODO meeting is located under the word “here” in the first item under “CODO Procedures.”  Then students will login with their Purdue Career Account username and password and select “CODO Meeting.”  We recommend that you take paper and a pen to the meeting to take notes.  Students need to make sure an sign-in when they arrive to a CODO meeting to make sure that their attendance is recorded.  As students have questions about this process, they should speak with their Exploratory Studies advisor!
