Daily Student Perspective

PurduettesCamp as a sophomore is such a great, new experience! I love seeing the new women grow daily and get more comfortable as Purduettes. Being an old woman has come with new responsibilities, and I think that everyone is stepping up to the plate with an open mind and a positive attitude. This coming year looks so bright, and I can’t wait to be a part of it and represent Purdue with class.
