Today:  Purdue University's main campus is hosting another record number of freshmen this fall, and administrator Rob Wynkoop is on "Regionally Speaking" to talk about how they're transitioning from "de-densification" last school year, due to COVID, to prepare for a big freshman class.  I.U. Northwest dean of student success in the College of Arts & Sciences Kristen Huysken talks about the "Summer Bridge" program Aug. 16-20, as a way for incoming first-year students to be ready for a new academic year. And IPB News's Lee Gaines has a report on concerns that federal funds, helping students get tutoring help during the pandemic, may run out soon.

Chris Nolte produces and hosts “Regionally Speaking” aired weekdays from noon to 1:00 p.m. He's also the temporary local "Morning Edition" host.
