WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Purdue's College of Liberal Arts kicked off "Love Liberal Arts" week Monday. The week celebrates liberal arts through free events across campus.
Students were able to get custom t-shirts Monday afternoon, and volunteers will be giving out hot chocolate across campus during the week.
Professional development activities will also be offered throughout the week. Students will be able to attend resume review sessions and get head shots taken. For marketing and communication director Kati Pratt, the week helps showcase other majors outside of STEM.
"They wanted to have their day and highlight the different ways that liberal arts helps STEM work. Through the intersection between Liberal Arts and STEM,” said Pratt.
The college will also host New York Times best-selling author Harlan Cohen this Wednesday. He will be speaking in the Lawson Building at 6 pm about "getting comfortable with the uncomfortable".
The event will be open to the public.
