At Purdue, 150 undergraduates came to the Student Union and Stewart Center on a Saturday early in spring semester. The theme was Small Steps to Giant Leaps. The chapter invited successful young professionals from diverse fields to speak in break-out sessions. Lunch featured Keynoter and President Emeritus Martin C. Jischke (a Mortar Board), who spoke on the importance of making the most of the time as students. The chapter wanted to offer a service to the student body, give alumni an opportunity to reconnect with campus and promote Mortar Board. This program has been held for nearly 30 years.
