Honestly, it's a pretty good school. It is a small campus compared to its main campus, but I'm not really in college for spending my leisure time but for enhancing my education. The nursing program in Purdue Northwest is pretty good, and I'm glad to be in it.
Overall Purdue University-Calumet Campus provides a safe inclusive environment for students. there is so much to take part in academically and extracurricularly. the diversity of the students makes for a warm environment and the helpfulness and availability of the teachers propel students to success.
Besides the expensive but nice dorms, theres really not anything to do on campus and if there is something to do its pretty lame. The campus location is in Hammond, Indiana which is a pretty sketchy area in indiana. i honestly never feel safe walking around campus at night.
It is a very good campus. People are very friendly and you get around very fast and easy. There are plenty of places you can go on campus for extra help and find what you need fast. The classes are a decent size and the professor can get around to everyone that needs help. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the campus and everyone else in it.

The advice I would give myself as a senior in high school would be to give it my all. In high school I tried to do my best, but I never tried my hardest. I would explain to myself that trying my hardest really does pay off in the end. I would also give myself the advice of applying for every shcolarship possible. I now find myself in financial trouble and wish I would have signed up for a lot more scholarships. The last thing I would advise myself to do was to never give up and never let someone else tell me what I can be in life. Too often I let myself be bothered by this in high school and now that I outgrew that fear, I am doing better than I have ever done before. This past semester I got straight A's and done it thanks to my perseverance. All in all the advice I would give to myself would be to try my hardest and to give it my all no matter what I was doing in highschool.
My school is challenging.
I think the worst thing about Purdue University Calumet are the Academic Counselors. I attended Indiana Unviersity in Bloomington and was absolutely impressed with my counselor. She knew my name each time we spoke and was well rehearsed with where i was in school. My counselor at Purdue Calumet has no idea who i am, what classes I am in or what my goals are. At one point she kept telling me take spanish, ive been enrolled in French. I have had negative experiences with my counselor at purdue calumet.
The kind of person that should attend this school should be a hard working person who wants to better their life through education.
You're either born technical or left behind what is going on in the classroom.
It is well-known university with quality education with a culturally diverse staff and student body. The campus is the right size where everything is accessable within a short distance. The professors and instructors are all helpful and good people with thier students in their best interest.
someone who is not focused on actually moving on in life to succeed. Someone who only wants to party and waste money. A person who does not want to obtain a degree but only needs something to do.
I BRAG ABOUT FLEXIBLE CLASS SCHEDULES. THE ABILITY TO GET QUALITY SOUND ADVICE FROM ADVISORS AND THE ABILITY TO TALK TO TEACHERS WHENEVER YOU NEED TO.
Purdue Calumet is best known as a closer and more affordable branch of the main Purdue University in Lafayette. It is a smaller campus, but the professors are helpful and friendly and seem focused on our education. It is easy to make friends, and a pretty fun place to be.
I had been out of school for eleven years when I enrolled at Purdue University Calumet, so I just wish I would have better prepared myself to deal with the work load that I was going to take on.
I enjoy the accessibility of professors and the small class room sizes. Becausee the classes are smaller, the professors are more likely to recognize you, and it is easier to get to know them and approach them for help. Most of the professors are always willing to make accomodations to help you with any problems you have. In fact, much of the faculty and staff on campus are extremely helpful and want you to succeed.
The drive, and the class rooms seem past their prime.
I am interested in various academic programs, currently I am interested in Softball, Biology.
I believe the Honor College
Yes very much accurate.
