WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. – More than 70 institutions of higher education will be at Purdue University's West Lafayette campus Sept. 21-22 during the Big Ten + Graduate School Exposition.

The event, in Purdue Memorial Union's North and South Ballrooms, is designed to aid prospective students.

Students interested in pursuing graduate study in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and related disciplines can talk to faculty and students from several institutions. More than a dozen business, medical, and law schools also will be in attendance. Workshops on funding graduate study, applying to graduate school, and networking with recruiters also will be presented.

"This is a wonderful opportunity for students to obtain comprehensive information about graduate education and research opportunities at a variety of graduate institutions," said Janet Beagle, director of graduate admissions at Purdue. "By attending the expo, students can talk to professors, current graduate students, and staff about graduate school and what steps are necessary to set them on the path they choose."

Purdue students may attend the Sept. 22 session for free with their Purdue ID, or they may participate in all expo events - including workshops, meals, and networking receptions - and pay the regular registration fee of $35 in advance or $40 at the door. Purdue students can register at:
