The Best of PESC: Welcome to Our Blog!
Rolling into a new school year means PESC is busy preparing for another semester of serving campus and having fun while we’re at it! To make sure we remember all the highlights, and so we can show everyone what we’re up to, we’ve decided to start up a blog! On here you’ll find recaps and pictures of all our events, career fairs, and outstanding members.
For this first post, we’re recapping last semester: Spring 2019!
While it may be our “spring” career fair, EXPO took place in the heart of West Lafayette winter in January. With over 4,000 students and 170 employers in attendance, the negative temperatures didn’t stop us from throwing a great fair, during which we debuted the new “Skip-the-Line” feature which allowed companies to talk to students who had sent in their resumes ahead of time.
Our Campus Relations committee organized the first ever Purdue National Chain Reaction Competition in March, where we saw collegiate teams come together to display their complex inventions that accomplished a simple task: putting toothpaste on a toothbrush.

Engineering Outreach continued to give back to our community with a variety of children’s activities. MINDS (our middle school engineering event) received great reviews from parents and kids alike (read more here), and at this year’s Springfest, our booth was a non-stop rush of kids building their own catapults, airplanes, and helicopters! We even got a surprise visit from PESCy, our favorite mascot.
As we look to the future, the Fall semester has plenty of events waiting for us: reaching out to freshmen at Boiler Bash, hosting the largest student run career fair with Industrial Roundtable, and spending a fun day with elementary school students teaching them the in’s and out’s of engineering at Elementary IDEAS! (And that’s just to name a few)
Check back here in the future for updates about everything we’re doing on council, and as always:
