Going to college isn't what it used to be. Just ask any member of Purdue's incoming freshman class. Not only do students today need to be academically excellent, they also must possess other sets of skills and talents to prove they are well-rounded and ready for the rigors of college life.
This month, Purdue is putting the spotlight on five who are beginning their college careers this fall. Whether devoting their spare time to music, serving their communities or learning about wildlife, these students represent the diversity -- in all senses of the word -- of the newest class of Boilermakers.
