Purdue University-Main Campus Top Questions

Is the stereotype of students at your school accurate?


This stereotype is pretty accurate. Majority of the campus is engineering. There are very few programs or extracurriculars for anything outside of that major. One of the worst parts of this is the engineering students often insinuate that other majors are stupid. In the campus newspaper, there was a letter to the editor stating that Liberal Arts majors don't even deserve to have computer labs! It can be really frustrating, as well, to find any career guidance with a non-engineering major. In the fall, there is a job fair called the Industrial Roundtable. This job fair brings in about 200 companies all searching for engineers. The Liberal Arts job fairs brings in about 20 companies, including some restaurants looking for servers. It can be irritating.
