It's Fall, Y'all!

Finally, it's time to grab your favorite Purdue sweatshirt, shuffle through the falling leaves, and sip a warm drink (pumpkin spice optional). While you have a fall break, that doesn't mean that your pre-professional work needs to stop! Take some time to look for a podcast about your field. Look up a few programs and see if they are offering any webinars. Start following some schools and your professional organizations on social media. You can learn a lot with these steps. Not sure where to start? We can help.
