Advice for the Future Boilermaker

Say Yes!.... Whether that is conducting research with a professor, joining an improv comedy troop, going to a concert that is described as contemporary Americana funk folkgrass or laughing with your friends until the wee hours of the morning. Take a chance, take a risk, you may fail; but you won’t know until you have tried, and you will most certainly learn from the experience.  Purdue will be a challenge.  The university offers resources to help you succeed….USE them we want you to be successful!...If you have a question, ask!

If anyone ever gives you a hard time about being undecided, simply reply that you are well rounded in your interests.


Fun Facts

I enjoy maps, music and sports of all kinds.  There is a good chance you can find me outside playing in a game or strumming a tune and utilizing assorted geographical knowledge for a good cause.  I have a large family and friends scattered around the country & globe, in my spare time I enjoy traveling to visit them.
