What is the most interesting thing you’ve learned or seen as a tour guide at Purdue?

I learned that Purdue was created as a land grant school for the state of Indiana. The water pump outside of stone hall (formerly the women's residence hall) was actually a place for the girls to see their boyfriends by saying they wanted a drink of water due to their set curfews.

What is your favorite spot on campus?

HSSE library- I love to look at the mural painted directly above it!
