NOTE TO CURRENT INTERNATIONAL EXCHANGE STUDENTS (and their parents and their home universities): Because campus safety and student well-being are our highest priorities, we are saddened to learn of the shooting incident today (January 21, 2014). At the time of this writing, the campus-wide alert has been lifted and the situation is under control. Unofficial reports are that one person (i.e. not an exchange student) was killed and we express all sympathy to their family and friends. Other information may be available on the Purdue website.http://www.purdue.edu/emergency/ - - Submitted by Brian Harley, Associate Dean of International Programs (January 21, 2014)
