unprecedented," said Robert J. Froehlich, chief investment strategist, Deutsche
Asset Management, Americas and vice chairman of Scudder Investments.
"Our keynote presentations covered an incredible span, from the economy to the
technical market, the fundamental market, risk return -- it was incredible. The
students' level of professionalism and maturity was unbelievable. They acted
like they've been in the business for 10 years when they haven't even been in
the business 10 days."

Daniel J. Curran, UD's President, Sam Gould, UD's dean of the School of Business

"This is an incredible once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," said O'Brien. "But the
true recognition should be extended to the University of Dayton R.I.S.E.
symposium for giving us the opportunity to meet so many individuals with so much
clout in the investing world. It provided a lasting impact for all of us
entering the investing community."
Purdue took first-place honors in the third annual national student managed
portfolio competition, based upon their combined risk-adjusted performance for
2002 and presentations before two national panels of investment professionals.
