Admittedly, we don’t yet have flying cars (though we may soon have autonomous ones). But the Jetsons-esque world we dreamt of is finally being realized.

Searching for the right fit can be daunting. Thinking about college choices and funding can be overwhelming. Beginning this fall, the Purdue Graduate School intends to make this process much easier through the Midwest Graduate and Professional School Summit, a one-day graduate school exposition, to be held on Nov. 11 in Stewart Center.

    Thursday, October 5, 2017
