I hope every Boilermaker everywhere got
the news that in the brand new Wall Street Journal rankings of American
universities, Purdue was found the number four public university in the country,
tied with Cal Berkeley. It’s a tremendous tribute to our faculty and to those
students who came here prepared well and then as alums led great lives out in the
world as measured by the Journal’s very credible methodology. But as Boilermakers we’re never satisfied. Number four is great, but three or two or one would be better so we will continue making the investments and raising the
expectations of ourselves and our students that we believe are producing
as we like to say the highest proven value in higher education. Boiler up!
