What was your position at Purdue before you retired?

Assistant Director of Admissions. Retired in 2011

Why did you become a volunteer for the Welcome Center?

I love Purdue and like to help visitors and students find their way around.

What is the most interesting or funny experience you have had at the kiosk?

Someone once said that John Purdue wanted no academic building higher than University Hall. When the Math Building was built, it had to have a different zip code?

Where is your favorite spot on campus?

Founder's Park
