Living near IU, most talk is of the Hoosiers. So, when talk turns to the few family members who go to that "other" Indiana school -- you know, the one abbreviated P.U. -- interesting things happen. I overheard somebody talking to a person who had a student up there, and this was what was said: "So, he's a Purduian, huh?"

My immediate, if unspoken, response was, "That's wrong. It ought to be Purduvian" -- on the analogy Peru, Peruvian : Purdue, Purduvian, right?
