FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – Purdue University is the top college pick for Allen County's top graduates.

The Journal Gazette surveyed the top ten graduates from high schools in the county to find out where they plan to attend college. They surveyed 160 students this year.

Last year, Indiana University (IU) was the top choice, but this year Purdue takes the top spot with 41 students heading there in the Fall. Twenty-three say they plan to head to IU, while 17 are staying in town to attend IPFW. Ball State University was fourth with seven students heading there, and Notre Dame was a close fifth with six.
