In exactly one month Purdue will resume classes for the fall semester. A few weeks from now, roughly 40,000 of us will flood back to West Lafayette, jamming up the roads with U-Haul trailers, re-populating the bars, and most importantly of all, gearing up for another year of Boilermaker sports.
I've spent my summer at an internship on an Army base in central Texas. While I've enjoyed the work, the people, and the wonderfully dry heat, I am getting rather tired of hearing about the Texas A&M Aggies and the Texas Longhorns. Not to mention that every time someone mentions OSU I vomit a little before realizing he or she is talking about Oklahoma State, not the Buckeyes.
|I don't want to hear any more about this.|
|Someone PLEASE talk to me about this!|
So to my fellow classmates, I look forward to joining you for a wonderful fall of football, volleyball, soccer, golf, cross country, tennis, and whatever other competitions out there float your boat. If you've got the VIP pass, try not to lose it at the first athletic event you go to, like I did last year.
To those loyal alumni, future Boilermakers, and otherwise friends of Purdue, I hope you make it to campus, and maybe join me at Breakfast Club?
