“Cody’s dedication to his studies and learning is equally demonstrated in his commitment to his career in the Army and his contributions on campus here at Purdue Calumet and the community.  Cody has managed to balance his training and career in the army with rigorous biology courses and contributions to the Purdue supplemental instruction and tutoring programs.  He has taken the time to assist in educating fellow classmates and in supporting Veteran programs on campus.”  “Cody has worked diligently to put together his work and has developed a strong appreciation for research and discovery and how this relates to classroom instruction.   He has demonstrated that he is not only enthusiastic and genuinely excited about his academic education, but that he would like to apply what he learns to real questions and to teach others.”
