WEST LAFAYETTE -- Local students took the first step in becoming Purdue Boilermakers by participating in the annual STAR program at Purdue University's West Lafayette campus recently. The STAR program is a summer program hosted by the university.
The participants included Dustin Helwig, Dustin Stevenson, Tiffani Goodman, Jacob Dispennett, Grayce Pruitt and Kyle Rice, all of Brazil, as well as Nathan Buell, Bowling Green, and Samantha Cooper and Joseph Fidler, both of Quincy.
Transition, Advising and Registration (STAR) is Purdue's program for new undergraduate students to receive academic advice and create their initial course schedule.
Incoming students select their one-day STAR session and come to Purdue's West Lafayette campus to conduct this and other important business.
Purdue University was founded in 1869. More than 39,000 students are enrolled in the university
