I love it when a plan comes together. After 2 years of planning we held our first webinar last night taking online chats to the next level. Wow what a night!
The two hour webinar featured fellow bloggers David Bowker and Kyle Loux on camera and Dennis Chu working with me off camera on the production side of things. Also joining us on camera were PSEF members Parul Schroff, and Josh Folk and guests from around the world. The great thing about the webinar is that it helps our guests know that when we say we have current students answering questions, we really do. I’ve always thought that, when it comes to the online chats, someone out there might picture David Bowker and I sitting in a room pretending to be current students. Kind of like the tv commercial where they past the phone around the room of four people all pretending to be customer service. The webinars we hope will give future engineering students a better sense of their future student peers at Purdue.
Here we are at the start of the 2011-12 school year. It’s hard to believe that summer is gone, first-year students are now settled into classes and taking their first round of exams, and now new prospective students are starting to visit Purdue Engineering. Before we know it winter will be here but for now we are enjoying great fall weather here in West Lafayette.
Hi I’m Amy Cade, the Assistant Director of the Office of Future Engineers. In addition to working for Purdue Engineering I also have both a Bachelor and Master’s degree from Purdue University. While I’ve lived in the area for over twenty years, I was born in Kansas and grew up in Colorado before moving to Indiana. Life in the Office of Future Engineers keeps me pretty busy and I’ll try to just share the highlights as well as some helpful information.
This is a good time for me to remind you that if you are a high school senior now is the time to apply to Purdue as the November 15th deadline will be here before you know it. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to be considered for merit based scholarships.
