For many, allegiance to Purdue is a family affair -- passed from generation to generation. They bleed gold and black, and Purdue's history is part family history. They were born to be Boilermakers. They are proud to be 5 Students Who are Legacy Makers.  

The students featured are:

* Bailey Farrer – Royal Center, Ind. One of 25 Farrers to attend Purdue, she's following in family footsteps as an animal sciences major with a personal passion for livestock breeding and showing.

* Samantha Feulner – Bloomington, Minn. Her parents were members of the "All-American" Marching Band. She's keeping the spirit alive as a competitive swimmer and computer scientist with an interest in data security.

* Vanessa Hale – Augusta, Ga. With a doctor of veterinary medicine degree from Purdue already in hand, this graduate student in biological sciences is driven to make a difference in wildlife conservation research. She shares Purdue pride with her husband, also a Boilermaker.

* Christopher Hanselman – New Palestine, Ind. His parents – an electrical engineering student and business student – met at Purdue. This chemical engineering major and Beering Scholar hopes some day to develop pharmaceuticals to improve lives.

* Pablo Puente – Santa Cruz, Bolivia. One of three brothers to attend Purdue, he hopes to use his Krannert School of Management education as the base for a career in corporate law.
