Advice to students: "If you learn from defeat, you haven't really lost." -Zig Ziglar



Candace Tulacz-Moore

Advice to students: "Get involved in student organizations and volunteer opportunities to find your community on campus. Try new things (i.e. take a course on a subject you've never heard of OR try a Den Pop flavor on the wall of the Discount Den you're never had)! Do not be afraid to fail. Your greatest power comes from your ability to learn and grow from the experiences that challenge you. Your professors WANT you to come to office hours (especially when you're struggling) - so GO! Purdue has so many resources - something for pretty much anything you may need support with - your advisor can help connect you to those resources, so ASK FOR HELP. Enjoy each moment; be present with your friends. This is cliché, but it goes by really fast!"
