These selections are based upon criteria to limit recency bias, favoritism and the impact of an athlete’s career. The selections are based solely on the athlete’s success at Purdue, not factoring in professional or international competitions and victories. They also do not take into consider… Read more
Since Purdue’s founding, the military has played an integral part in the University’s development. The existence of military training was a condition of the Morrill Land-Grant Act, the law which authorized the foundation of Purdue and many other public universities across the country. Read more
Billionaire Howard Schultz delivered his first national policy speech to the country Thursday from a podium in the usually intimate, but on that day relatively roomy, confines of Fowler Hall in Purdue’s Stewart Center. Read more
A recent column written by Purdue President Mitch Daniels touts the value of GPAs when used hand-in-hand with ACT and SAT scores to determine the “grit” of college applicants, a thesis statement clouded by his contradictory rhetoric and antagonistic view of students’ mental health. Read more
Entering the third year of his five-year contract, athletics director Mike Bobinski has been the architect behind the revival for the Purdue football program. His short tenure included the hiring and — more importantly — the retention of head coach Jeff Brohm. Read more

As a 1958 BSEE graduate, I have represented Purdue University for more than 40 years of sharing my experiences relating to the professional side of engineering with more than 75,000 students in 203 universities. This includes speaking at five conferences at Purdue.

On Jan. 20, Purdue provided educational programming around the nation’s 46th presidential inauguration. In a day packed full of discussion, from First Ladies’ fashion; to historical transitions of power; to defending the truth, it’s what we dared not discuss that says the most about us.
