What is your overall opinion of this school?

Strong academics. Large international program, although the campus is largely White and conservative. High value placed on the STEM and engineering departments at the systemic and student level, although many programs are of high quality (e.g., pharmacy, psychology, education, etc.). The surrounding area and city is not much of a "scene" but Chicago is only 2 hours away by car.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Purdue University is a great college. It is very academically focused. There is a variety of options to help you succeed including office hours, academic success centers, and learning communities. The work is challenging and at times overwhelming, but it is all worth it. There is a variety of Greek life, house parties, and tailgates for the big games.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like the school and recommend it to anyone looking for a big campus within a few hours of several large cities. Academically, it is challenging, but I know that I am definitely earning my degree. They aren't just giving it to me. Socially, there is tons to do, it's all about getting out there and finding people with similar interests and hobbies.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have genuinely enjoyed my time at Purdue. There is something for everyone here. The academics are rigorous but ultimately rewarding, and while you will find some difficult professors here and there, most of them want to see you succeed and will do what they can to help you. There are plenty of opportunities to be involved in greek life, sporting events and club activities, and not to mention there are many good food options all over campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Purdue is an amazing college that does not fail to let you know that they care about you. Students are friendly and it's not hard to make friends as long as you're social. There is always something new and exciting happening on campus. Overall it is a great campus that I am proud to get my degree form.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Purdue has something for everyone. There are tons of clubs and organizations and Greek life and plenty of off-campus activities as well. There's over 40k students so if there isn't something you enjoy, create it and I have no doubt you will find others who enjoy it as well. On-campus and off-campus there is a wide variety of food. Plenty of places to study. Biggest downside, to some, is that you are a very small fish in a very large pond. You have to make your own effort to connect with others and reach out as needed. If you are going to need professor letters for grad school or future jobs, you have to make extra effort to get to know them because they have too many students to remember you otherwise. On the flip side, very few professors (at least in my majors) cared if you missed class.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Excellent. I have visited a few times and it is why I will attend college there in the fall. The academic standard there is top of the line. The professors I spoke to have really impressed me and put me at ease. Other college visits didn't leave me with a positive impression.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Purdue is a big school but you can manage to venture out and make friends. Based on what I’ve seen, it’s clean and safe. I love the environment because people were very friendly. I was in a summer program in 6th grade which was amazing and I would recommend to everyone.

Good place for nerds. (Psst, you want to be a nerd, they are obviously the smartest and richest in today's world) I wish that I didn't involve myself in the quintessential american college party experience and spent more time studying and learning and creating!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Even though it is in a small town, Purdue University has no shortage of opportunities around you, whether you are looking for something related to academics or something to do for fun. Professors are very approachable and are always happy to help a student out if they are confused, and the living facilities provide students with a sense of comfort and home as they study hard for their futures.
