Tell us about your professors.
People always react positively when I tell them I go to Purdue. I am about the graduate at the end of the month (December 18) with a degree in English. Purdue is not known for its liberal art program, but I have received a challenging and rewarding education here. And best of all, I feel that I am apart of a tight-knit family. I am close with the professors and peers in my major. I have had bigger classes (core/elective classes) where my Professors don't know my name, but once I started really getting into my major (English classes) my teachers truly got to know me. I have many Professors who have mentored and seen me through my 4 and 1/2 years here and I will be forever grateful for their support and advice.
