Stories of Impact

JenkinsAudrey Jenkins

I was attracted to Purdue because of its strengths in the liberal arts and sciences. I’m studying biology and film and would like to combine my interests professionally through the making of documentaries.

While the strength of the science and liberal arts colleges at Purdue caught my attention, the Trustee Scholarship had a major impact on my decision. If I had gone to another school, I wouldn’t have received this large of a scholarship. 
I really enjoyed my freshman year. I was prepared to go to a smaller college, so when I arrived I was a little nervous. But I really enjoyed it.
I want to thank the people who support these scholarships. It is a great help for people who have a hard time paying for college. And it encourages you to learn and aspire toward your goals and dreams. I really appreciate the fact that people will support others' educations.
