How to ask questions while watching live: A chat function will be available on YouTube while the broadcast is live.

Purdue Polytechnic in Anderson, Columbus & Kokomo

June 5, 2024 • 7:00 p.m. (Eastern)

Join us for a special Live Q&A broadcast on YouTube to learn more about Purdue Polytechnic’s programs at our locations in Anderson, Columbus & Kokomo, Indiana, and what makes them unique. We will talk about how the majors offered at these locations have plans of study and course content that match those for the same majors in West Lafayette — often with smaller class sizes and even more opportunities for direct attention and support from professors. Our panelists will talk about how enrolling at one of our locations around Indiana is affordable to even more students and about our facilities and student clubs. We will discuss how each Polytechnic location strives to be a tight-knit community where students feel welcome and empowered to succeed. Panelists will include Missy Casner, Dmitri Gusev, Jeff Heiking and Dewey Swanson (professors), along with Nancy Lollar (director), Brooke Sale (academic advisor) and Christopher Anthony (student success coordinator). Current students Mohammed Aljaroodi, Shannon Coughlin, Diana Kirkov and the host for our broadcast, Erin Enzinger, will also be panelists.

Broadcast Replays from 2024

Replays, Sorted by Topic

We’ve been broadcasting for several years! If we didn’t cover a specific topic in one broadcast, there’s a chance we talked about it previously. Here are links to archived YouTube broadcasts, sorted by topic.

Of course, the older the broadcast, the greater chance that some of the information presented might be out of date. Be sure to check for current information on our prospective students and current students pages — and contact the Polytechnic’s Office of Recruitment, Retention and Diversity with your questions.

Everyone is welcome to watch any of these broadcasts, whether you’re a high school student thinking about your future or a senior who has applied and been admitted to Purdue. Broadcasts about our six academic schools/departments and their majors were originally aired for admitted students, but all prospective students are welcome to watch and learn more about the Polytechnic’s academics.
