I am 27 years old and currently a graduate student in chemistry at Purdue University. My grandfather was a trustee at Purdue and both my parents graduated from Purdue so I have been a die hard Boilermaker fan since I can remember. I got a B.S. in chemistry in 2005 from Purdue and should be done with my Ph.D. in about a year. I am a season ticket holder for both football and men's basketball.
I also have a very bad addiction to golf. I play as much as I can and have recently gotten into learning more about the architecture of courses. I hope to get to play some of the best courses in the world someday.
I hope to share opinions on Purdue sports, the Big Ten, and maybe some golf.
