Cal Ribbens
Personal Background & Interests

I was born in Cadillac, Michigan. As a child I lived in Marion, MI; Lake Odessa, MI; Sauk Village, IL; and Burke, VA. I received a B.S. in Mathematics from Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI, in 1981. My M.S. (84) and Ph.D. (86) in Computer Science are from Purdue University.

Outside of work, my time is spent with my family (wife Kathy, sons Philip and Michael, daughter Christina), my local church (Grace Covenant Presbyterian), and rooting for the Hokies, the Chicago Cubs, and the San Antonio Spurs. I will rarely turn down a donut or a bratwurst.
