Diploma wording change upsets some Purdue studentsOctober 2, 2018
By The Associated Press
HAMMOND — Some Purdue University Northwest students are angry that the school’s diplomas are being changed to specify that they graduated from a Purdue satellite campus.
The Hammond campus’ diplomas have historically included a bold header in black and gold letters reading “Purdue University.”
But school officials announced Friday that starting in May 2019 the diplomas will read “Purdue University Northwest.”
Twenty-year-old junior Kate Franklin says prospective Purdue Northwest students are told they can get a Purdue University degree at lower cost by living at home and commuting, but now that’s “totally changed.”
She and other students planned a Monday protest of the change.
School spokesman Doug Clark says it’s just a design change. School diplomas currently say they were earned in Hammond, although that text is at the bottom the diploma.
