Dean Patrick J. Wolfe
Dear alumni and friends,

As the new academic year approaches, we are delighted to welcome an exceptionally qualified incoming class across all departments in the College of Science. The new Data Science degree and the College's many highly ranked programs have attracted applicants in large numbers — EAPS and the Actuarial Science program are among the areas that will greet the biggest group of incoming students ever.

The College is the feature unit for the September kickoff of the Purdue University sesquicentennial anniversary, a yearlong celebration that will highlight “150 Years of Giant Leaps.” The College is sponsoring the Homecoming football game on September 22, and we hope you’ll join us.

In the spirit of the data science theme of our upcoming fall Insights magazine, we're building a companion Insights website — a digital issue that will also launch in early fall. We look forward to making our stories more accessible to you and to our audiences around the world.

With very best wishes from all of us here in the College,

Patrick J. Wolfe
Frederick L. Hovde Dean of the College of Science and Miller Family Professor of Statistics and Computer Science
