The Associated Press fact checked the first Indiana U.S. Senate debate Monday evening among Democratic incumbent Joe Donnelly and his challengers Republican Mike Braun and Libertarian Lucy Brenton.

Purdue NW

HAMMOND, Ind. (AP) — Some Purdue University Northwest students are angry that the school's diplomas are being changed to specify that they graduated from a Purdue satellite campus.

The Hammond campus' diplomas have historically included a bold header in black and gold letters reading "Purdue University."

But school officials announced Friday that starting in May 2019 the diplomas will read "Purdue University Northwest."
