Freshman wins the grand prize

Bartlett, Illinois native and Purdue freshman Elizabeth Gorski was the winner of this year's Foundations of Excellence survey given to all first year Purdue students. Freshmen were asked to spill the beans on the good, bad, and all the stuff in between about their experience at Purdue so far. Elizabeth has been pleased with her freshman experience saying, "Purdue makes it easy to get involved." She has found the transition to college life easy and has been having fun so far. Outside of course work, Elizabeth keeps busy as a Shreve Club senator, a member of Reformed University Fellowship, and enjoys volunteering in the community. As a reward for her participation in the survey, Elizabeth was given a signed Purdue Women's Basketball jersey presented by Coach Sharon Versyp. She will also be joining 9 of her friends to support the Boilermakers to victory at a game of her choice. Congratulations Elizabeth!
