It's very good. I feel like the college is very academic based especially towards engineering, math, and science. Although the school is very big, which makes it hard sometimes, it's also good because Purdue has very good facilities. Overall, Purdue is a great college.

Overall, Purdue University is a great school. While traffic and safety may be less than adequate, the food is alright, there are plenty of opportunities for housing, and the options for research, study abroad, and alumni relationships are incredible.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe Purdue is an amazing University and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It has a great social life while at the same time maintaining its status as a top university in the country. It is a division 1 school which means we get the chance to see top athletic programs play against us if we are not already the top school. All in all, Purdue is a great University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Purdue's main campus is almost like its own little community. There is something for everyone. There are plenty of places to hang out with friends, study, grab a bite to eat, and more! The professors are there to help students succeed and are always approachable outside of class. In terms of academics, Purdue is a very competitive university, but that does not mean that if you are struggling in a class that you are the only one. There are a ton of resources available on campus to help you get on the right track. There are even on-campus resources to help students who are feeling really stressed out, or have other reasons to see a therapist. In my experience, I have never found a place that is as inclusive as Purdue. At first, I felt like I did not belong, due to me being out of state; however, my opinion has definitely changed after my first semester on campus. I can confidently say that I have found my group of friends and I am looking forward to the rest of my semesters as a Boilermaker.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I hate this place. The university does not believe in us- that’s why I keep having to go trough weed out classes to prove them I belong here-, I am tired of the lack of grade inflation (its hurting my chances of landing an intenship as no one knows Purdue outside of the engineering community), I have had depression for the past year (they even charge you $50 to go to get treatment; after $30,000 tuition!!!), and unless you go greek there is nothing to do socially. I regret coming here every single day. I will try to transfer next semester no matter what.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Purdue is very STEM-focused with an emphasis on engineering. Campus is big but there is a bus system. Housing is hard to find and expensive the closer you get to campus. There is a lot of school spirit and unity for sports and the school as a whole. Many significant alumni, including 23 astronauts, visit often and give presentations.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Although I am not currently a student at Purdue University, I very frequently visit the campus to spend time with friends attending the college. Every time I visit the Purdue Campus, I am reminded of how disappointed I am for not possessing the ability to attend. Last winter, I was accepted in to Purdue to pursue my desired major of Actuarial Science; however, I decided to settle with IUPUI, as they provided me with more scholarship money. That being said, I fully intend to transfer to Purdue next Summer, as I wholeheartedly love this University. The campus itself is absolutely beautiful, both in landscape and architecture; furthermore, it possesses an abundance of unique redeeming qualities that separate it from all other major universities in Indiana. Although, I cannot address the academic provisions of this University, I can relay what currently enrolled students have communicated to me about them. I have never heard a complaint about the education system here at Purdue. Every student I have conversed with regarding academic programs has told me that a vast majority of professors are highly engaging and able to effectively communicate the material of their respective courses. I have also been told, emphatically, that professors provided an acceptable amount of office hours to assist students. What I have been told regarding the academic provisions of this university has only increased my desire to attend Next Fall. Another redeeming quality of this University is the Social Atmosphere and Culture. The campus is alive all hours of the night, each and every day. This university fully embraces the philosophy of working hard and playing hard. Students are not only enabled to, but are actually encouraged to engage in school sanctioned social events, including tailgates, fraternity/serority functions, and campus rallies. Every social activity here is a party, and this University properly exemplifies an administration's ability to allow students to enjoy the college experience, while still remaining safe. I have never felt unsafe on campus, or spoken to a student who has ever felt unsafe navigating through campus. The student body, faculty, and staff are all extremely welcoming, and ingrain Purdue with an enthusiastic and free-spirited culture that is indiscriminately inclusive. Greek life at Purdue is exceptional, as every Fraternity and Serority I have visited has proven they know how to embody the perfect balance of having fun, while remaining safe and smart. Everyone is able to party with one another, and nobody ever feels excluded. There are no petty rivalries between two separate houses; in fact, I have noticed that separate houses often coordinate so that they don't have competing functions on the same night. This not only saves money for both houses, but develops healthy relationships between separate brother/sisterhoods. The Acres are a signature location at Purdue, and I absolutely LOVE the idea of having a vast majority of houses existing on the same street. I believe this not only increases the sense of togetherness amongst all houses, but also strengthens the University's culture. I really have nothing negative to say about this Campus or its University in general. This is my dream school and I hope I get to attend next year.

I love Purdue University-Main Campus! Although its internet can be fuzzy, its overall academic rigor is hard but rewarding when enough effort is put in, because a degree from this university is worth something to employers. Purdue prides itself on its academic pursuit.

I absolutely love the campus and the atmosphere there is! There is always a good vibe feeling when I go! All the people I know that attend there love the campus and never complain about it. I know many people who have graduated from there and they were all were very involved and had such high school spirit!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel as though Purdue really stands up to its reputation of challenging and diverse, however finding help in some classes can be really hard. I had one professor who only had one office hour a week and I had class during that time so I couldn't go. I had to fight with him just to meet with him for half an hour outside the class. Luckily, there are help rooms and aids you can speak to about assignments and help. However, if you're looking to get help from your actual professor you may not have as much luck. I hope you do, but I know I didn't and it really turned my opinion of the school upside down.
