Professor Dunsmore Voted Favorite Professor
Who's your favorite science professor? To celebrate the excellence of the College of Science faculty, the college asked alumni to cast their votes for their favorite professor. All summer the CoS tallied the votes of alumni to determine one favorite professor in each department. Congratulations to the Favorite Science Professor for the Department of Computer Science, Professor Buster Dunsmore!
Professor Dunsmore rode on the Purdue Science Student Council float in the Homecoming Parade on Friday, October 14, 2005. The float was dedicated to the Favorite Science Professors in the College of Science. Professor Dunsmore also joined the other Favorite Science Professors, some College of Science staff, and some alumni in the College of Science Homecoming tent before the game on October 15, 2005. Alumni were excited to see their favorite science professor, and Professor Dunsmore enjoyed catching up with former students.
