HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
Getting involved with a Polytechnic student organization is a great way to not only share your experience and knowledge with bright, promising Polytechnic students, but also to carry on the legacy of Purdue's excellence in education. The Purdue Polytechnic has over sixty student organizations. There are plenty of mentoring opportunities available at these organizations, or if you’d prefer to make a shorter-term commitment, you can volunteer to be a guest speaker at a specific meeting or event.
