Drew’s most valuable Purdue Calumet experience:
“Purdue Calumet is local to me. That made working going to school possible. It is surrounding by our countries steel industry. I had professors, teachers and fellow students that worked in and understood the same industry that I currently work in. I enjoy working with Purdue in an advisory roll to help see that the students who graduate have the correct tools to work in today’s industry.”

“Do what you enjoy. Follow standards whenever possible. Be professional, law abiding and ethical.”
