Political issues are huge around Purdue University. I haven't had a class yet where nobody mentions the economy and the current policies the United States is taking.
Speaking more locally, the decisions of the University President and the changes she is making are usually critiqued and discussed by the university. Students argue about whether or not her policies are working and what they would have done differently. Other students applaud the direction she is taking Purdue.
Issues of funding and which programs get the most press are always on the minds of people on campus. There are many opportunities to get involved and make changes to these policies within the student government system, so if a student is interested in these things, they are free to get involved.
