  • Boilermakers leave Hawaii tough, confident
    Over two subpar seasons, Matt Painter dealt with a team that couldn’t break through during hostile moments. When the intensity was dialed up, Purdue lacked the toughness gene and wilted. Some would say the Boilermakers were soft.
  • Boilers win island battle
      LAHAINA, Hawaii – Purdue came to Maui as a team searching for its identity and proof that two seasons worth of frustration was in the rearview mirror.
  • Boilers’ backcourt stable with Octeus
    The gift arrived in October by way of Fort Collins, Colorado, and Los Angeles. There was no package or a bow, but it was Christmas nonetheless for Purdue.

Purdue launches website to boost summer enrollment

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue University is taking to the web in an effort to increase summer enrollment.

The Journal & Courier reports the university launched a website titled Think Summer last week as part of a larger push to increase use of the West Lafayette campus during May, June and July.

Associate Vice Provost Frank Dooley says Purdue officials plan to push the initiative aggressively. Success could lead to a trimester plan that has been considered for about a year.

Only about 6,000 students enroll in at least one class during the summer.

The Think Summer website offers details on 290 courses offered this summer, financial aid and other options.

The campaign also will include postcards to students and emails to parents encouraging them to discuss the option with their children.
