Trick or Treat

Head Start Halloween Party

Second-year master's student Nathan Weaver shares rare quiet time with students from Lafayette Head Start during the Halloween party. The costumed trick-or-treaters filled their baskets with goodies from faculty, staff, and students throughout the Krannert complex. Weaver and several other master's students took part in the party as a result of their work with the Management Volunteer Program.

Still Growing - School of Management Employers Forum (SMEF)

Ninety-Four companies and an estimated 1,300 students attended the School of Management Employers Forum (SMEF) held September 14 in the Purdue Memorial Union Ballrooms.

The forum provides a valuable service to both the students and the companies that attend, says forum chair Becky Lange, BSM '00. Students are able to network, discuss internship and full-time job opportunities, and learn about company business and culture. Employers have a large pool of high-quality students from which to draw for interviews, leading many times to hirings that fill company needs.

Almost a year in the planning, the forum is organized and run by students. "It's a lot of work, but very rewarding," Lange says. "The most exciting part is standing in the ballrooms and seeing the faces of satisfied students who just got that big interview or found their dream career. It motivates us to keep striving to add new and diverse companies each year."

The University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School and MIT tied for first place. About a dozen teams drawn from the top 20 business schools in the nation competed this year, says Ali Jalal, president of Krannert's Operations Club.
