Honors and Awards

The college is proud of its many alumni and friends that represent the Purdue family throughout the world. Our alumni and friends are truly special people. We see this at every event and in the way that they are willing to give back their time and talent to the college. Sometimes you come across an alum who exceeds the expectations of the University, college, and their community. When this happens we like to give honor where honor is due.
