My name is Brad and I am from Gary, Indiana. I also graduated from Lew Wallace High School. After graduating from high school, I soon began working two jobs and soon realized that I did not want to be roofer or work at Menards forever, so I decided to attend college to pursue a degree close to home and I decided to attend Purdue University Calumet. It is affordable and it was just the right choice for me. My major is Business Administration/ Human Resource Management, with a minor in Marketing.
My name is Elisha. I am 22 years old and live in Schererville, where I moved to from my parents house. I graduated from Munster, IN with academic honors and as part of the National Honors Society. I wanted to go to a school that was close to home and with a low-cost price. Purdue is a brand recognized throughout the nation. Its convenient location, and low tuition cost allowed me the affordability to attend a University that was right for me and allow me to figure out who I am and what I want to do. I am working towards my dual degree in Marketing and Accounting.
My name is Merydith. I grew up in the Philippines where opportunities are only afforded to those who can afford. I am a 36 years old mother of two. I never thought that I will be able to finish my Bachelor’s Degree if not because of Purdue’s low-cost tuition fee. Purdue allowed me to continue to pursue my desire to be a Human Resources Personnel, and with their flexible class schedule, I am able to take care of those who matters most, my family.
My name is Lace. I am 24 years old and live in my hometown Hammond, IN. I graduated from Hammond High School. After my high-school graduation, I chose to continue my education at Purdue Calumet, because I became pregnant and wanted to stay close to home.

I will be the first person in my immediate family to obtain a Bachelor’s degree this May (double major in Human Resources & Retailing).
