The community you can build within your residence hall can not only help you make lifelong friends, but you can also accomplish amazing feats... even in your freshman year. Just ask Jacob Peddycord, who won the 64th Purdue Grand Prix race as a rookie and member of the Harrison Hall Cavalier Club Racing Team. 

"The bud of victory is always in the truth."
