WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Students at Purdue vied to be the best salesperson on campus this week.
The Purdue Center for Professional Selling held its Spring Sales Competition Wednesday.
Students were to act as if they were a sales representative for Hewlett Packard trying to sell computers to Purdue's Information Technology Program.
Fifth year student Jack James says he thinks he did well, but could have prepared better.
"I think today went okay," James said. "I could have studied a little harder. I didn't know my knowledge of the company well enough. I thought just recognizing the common name would be enough, but I saw myself catch up a little bit."
Cash prizes are given to the top three students with $350 going to first place.
The judges for the competition, who are from local businesses, also offer job interviews for the top three.
The trees is up and the decorations are set. Visitors are getting a special look at the Haan Mansion as Christmas approaches.
Several generations gathered Saturday to remember a day that will live in infamy. The day marked 72 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor.
Downtown Lafayette transformed into a scene right out of Victorian England Saturday for Dickens of a Christmas.
