What's the most common question you hear from prospective students?
Wow, you're from New Jersey?! What made you choose Purdue?!
That is something I am bound to hear every tour I give. It's the perfect segue into the part of the tour that I call 'The Warm & Fuzzies' which is where I discuss why I love Purdue and why they should love it too."
Guess what?!
OF COURSE YOU DO! Now let's get your company some exposure on campus.
You should contact our Industrial Relations Director, Kurtis Bergman (kbergma@purdue.edu). PSEF would love to host your company for an information session or recruiting event on campus.

We have done it before, and we're not afraid to do it again, so help us to help you!
Go ahead, send that email! You know you want to!
Here they are, this semester's New Mems!

Kurtis Bergman is a PSEF junior in Chemical Engineering and the IR director. He proposed to Leah, his girlfriend of four years, under Purdue's Bell Tower on Tuesday, February 11th.
Kurtis said, "The first clue was on her apartment door, which began her scavenger hunt around campus for some treasure. I'd love to give a shout-out to Kim Rink and Riya Parikh, two PSEFers who helped get the proposal on camera!"

"We had planned on going to SkyZone for a few weeks, we were all pumped. We walk in and there are like a billion 12 year olds running around. The place is booked until 8pm! Long story short, we find a laser tag place nearby. We show up and it is a kind of rinky-dink place but we say, "what the heck". We have a blast!! We play there for nearly 3 hours. We then go to this Irish restaurant and eat dinner before driving back to campus. It was an awesome day, and what made it great was how we made a good situation out of a bad one!"

"Communication. From talking to prospective students to working with Exec to develop new plans, PSEF really taught me how to communicate effectively. That skill has been really beneficial in the workforce, especially in consulting when you have a lot of interaction with clients."

Our most successful EXPO yet!!
406 students
from 23 schools
Out of This World! Space-themed egg drop capsule design competition
*No chickens were harmed in the taking of this picture...
The winners were from Hoosier Academies,
a first-time EXPO participant!
Four of their "astronauts" survived "re-entry"!
"Students had to consider the cost, weight, and safety of up to 5 egg 'astronauts' as they "returned to Earth" in the re-entry capsules they designed. There were rewards for returning all of their astronauts unscathed and penalties if any of them were injured. Teams were also judged on initial
design considerations
as well as short
presentations they
gave prior to testing
their capsule."

2014 EXPO Director
