JPUR Call Out

The Journal of Purdue Undergraduate Research (JPUR) volume 4 has just been published and highlights the undergraduate research that is being conducted on the Purdue campus, engineering students as well. Volume 5 is now in the works, and we want many more engineering students to consider submitting an abstract for consideration. Could you help us by sending an email out to the ME students especially students who may be enrolled in independent research last year and currently? It is a great publishing opportunity for students.

The callout and abstract writing workshop is on October 30th for anyone interested in submitting an article proposal (an abstract) for the November 15th deadline. At the event, students will learn about JPUR, the submission process, the benefits of publishing their research, get practical tips on their abstract, and receive one-on-one consultation.

Thank you for helping get the word out!

Please find attached flyer for an exciting writing course for gamers and non-gamers.  It could be a great elective for writing and narrative design to go with visual communication, technology and other areas of study.  Please contact Professor Samantha Blackmon at blackmos@purdue.edu for additional information.

Thank you,

It is for an entrepreneurial venture. The data is for myself and a colleague (Shane White, who attended Purdue's Krannert) to decide how we will move forward with our venture.

Our desire is to create an unbiased web application where students can come learn terminology and utilize our tools to better understand the terms of their student loans. We are trying to grasp what the largest pain points of students tend to be when confronted with loan options, and how we can help them make more informed decisions when choosing their loan to minimize the unknowns when coming out of college.
