WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Gov. Mitch Daniels has been named the next president of Purdue University, a role he'll take on after leaving office in January.
Purdue trustees voted unanimously Thursday morning to appoint Daniels to succeed France Cordova, who will leave in July after five years at Purdue's helm.

Glad she is gone.....Nice appointment of Gov. Daniels.
It is refeshing to hear about an experienced (and successful) public servant going from government to academia, rather than seeing idiots who only have experience teaching in universities coming to government as the “expert” on any given (liberal/social engineering) topic - Exhibit “A”, Mr. Soetoro. The students should feel blessed to have that kind of practical world-view coming to the university.
As he’d said before, Mitch Daniels won’t be Romney’s running mate.
I’m an IU alum so normally I could care less what happens in the pigsty up north. However, both of my sons turned traitor on me and went there. One already graduated but the other still has three years to go. Purdue’s financial situation will be sound under Daniels, and hopefully it will translate into fewer tuition increases.
I’m also glad Purdue decided to go outside academia for their choice of President. More universities should do so.
And you can use a computer? ;)
Purdue does have a degree offered in “turf management.” It is a very important degree; it means that the Purdue grads can cut the grass on golf courses so that IU doctors, attorneys and businessmen can play on them.
I thought their “turf management” course was to repair the field after their cheerleaders went grazing at half-time...
LOL. Why yes, it is. That’s why the football field at Ross-Ade has natural turf.
