WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Purdue's College of Liberal Arts is celebrating its majors and students this week.
"Love Liberal Arts Week" includes several free events and giveaways across campus.
The week offers students professional development activities such as free professional headshots. Presentations and alumni hosted events are also being offered to all students.
Students can even get a special Love Liberal Arts beanie throughout the week.
Organizer Nick Wang said the event helps educate others about the importance of liberal arts.
"It can help us with our critical thinking, emotional intelligence, written and verbal communication, which is a really important soft skill that sometimes people overlook," said Wang.
Wang added that liberal arts can help students take their education to the next level.
"We have a degree plus program which helps students combine a STEM degree or business degree with a communication degree or say a history to help students to boost their career in the future," said Wang.
"Love Liberal Arts Week" was created by the college's Student Leadership Council. This is the event's fifth year.
