Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels knows his life will change when he leaves Indianapolis and heads north about 65 miles up I-65.
Monday, he begins his tenure as president at Purdue University.
Thursday he took about 40 minutes to talk to a handful of reporters on a conference call. The Pilot News was one of the news organizations invited.
â€śAlmost everything is going to be different,â€ť said Daniels of his new gig. â€śI just hope some of the same principles I learned in office apply.â€ť
Daniels felt that his work in building a consensus at the statehouse will work at Purdue.
