Boiler Up!!!!

Wednesday, April 8, 2009

Oh, how I love being a Boilermaker!

As a senior, I am still trying to figure out why I didn’t apply to Purdue until January of my senior year of high school. As a born Buckeye (yes, I am from Ohio), it may seem strange to hear me say that I can’t imagine life without Purdue! It seems as though the experiences at this prestigious university have been limitless and I wouldn’t trade the black and gold for anything!!!

Okay, now for the most recent news that made my passion and love for Purdue even stronger…

I went home to this weekend, randomly checked my e-mail (because I am addicted to checking it), and found an e-mail in my inbox with “congratulations” as the subject line. Of course, I had to check things out to see why congratulations were in order and discovered that I had been named the 2009 Outstanding Dietetic Student from a Didactic Program in Dietetics Program in Indiana. This is an award that is given to one student within the state of Indiana who is enrolled in a Didactic Program in Dietetics. There is no doubt in my mind that the opportunities, learning experiences, outstanding mentors, and challenging coursework made available by Purdue and the College of Consumer and Family Sciences were the “driving forces” behind this award. In a few weeks, I will make a trip to Indianapolis for the awards ceremony and will be accompanied by my boss from the Foods and Nutrition labs—just goes to show what a close-knit group we are in CFS. Thanks Purdue and CFS!

Much love for everything black and gold,
