Krannert Konnection - May 2015
Welcome to your first Krannert Konnection admitted student e-newsletter. Krannert Konnection will assist you in your transition to your program in the Krannert School of Management and living in the West Lafayette/Lafayette area. It’s essential for a flawless transition to Purdue University that you read each e-newsletter and other communication from Krannert and Purdue.
Housing and Orientation
The Admitted Student web site has helpful tips to utilize when searching for housing in the West Lafayette/Lafayette area. The web site also has helpful academic resources, critical calendar dates and more.
Krannert Launch is August 12-21, required for all students and International Student Orientation (ISO) is August 3-7, required for all international students. More information regarding Krannert Launch and ISO will be included in future communications and posted on the web site.
Your Next Steps
The Next Steps web site includes important actions you must take to make your transition. If you should have questions about any of the Next Steps, contact the MBA and Master’s Programs Office. One of these essential steps is Paying Your Student Deposit.
The Krannert Information Literacy course needs to be completed by the date listed on the syllabus that is posted on Blackboard Learn. This course is a work at your own pace so you can work through sections at a time.
Krannert Professional Development Center
During the summer you will be contacted by your personal career coach from the Krannert Professional Development Center (KPDC) to schedule a Skype meeting. Your coach will provide feedback on your resume, share critical dates and important resources with you, and answer any questions you may have. The KPDC staff will also facilitate sessions during orientation around career and leadership development.
MBA and Master’s Programs webinars have been geared toward living and learning at Purdue. These are resources available for you:
