What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of Purdue University-North Central Campus is good. I am currently attending as a dual credit student through Westville High School and they have given us a decent college experience. The class sizes are nice and professors are highly accessible. It's a university close to home that educates well. There are plenty of after school clubs to get involved into and is a very quaint campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like Purdue North Central. Everyone on the campus is always so helpful. The teachers will help you if you have questions. This faculty wants the students to do well and succeed. They want us to be able to graduate from there and do well in life. The class sizes are not too extremely big either. There is about thirty students in each class, but I am still able to connect with the teacher one on one if I have questions about an assignment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this University. The campus size is perfect for me. My professors are always available and helpful. I also love the facilities such as the library and study lounges. I have made many great friends in each of my classes. I also love taking nature walks on the trails.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that the campus is diverse in its own way. There are not many sporting opportunities or ways to make friends. As for housing, there are apartments across the street which I lived in while attending. Overall the school is well kept and affordable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have enjoyed my time at the North Central campus! As far as universities go it's relatively small, so everyone knows just about everyone else, including professors. I can't count how many times I have run into my professors around campus and had conversations with them. It's a good school, the academics are challenging, but there's always help to be found if you need it, whether it be from professors, tutors, or other students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Purdue University-North Central is a very good school if you apply yourself. If you seize the opportunities that are presented to you then you can achieve whatever you would like at a very cheap tuition cost. The downside Is that there are not as many majors available to you as there would be at a bigger college. The professors are usually readily available and open to help you if needed. It is very easy to connect with academic advisors, and just about anyone else that you need to contact during your schooling at PNC. The food is well below average, and I would not suggest spending your time or money in the school cafeteria. If you're looking for a cheap school and are willing to settle for average academics and extra curricular activities then PNC is perfect.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Shortly after World War II Purdue had began offering technical classes. It began offering an engineering program to freshman, and grew from there. As of more recently, in 2002 it opened a 24 hour emergency veterinary center for small animals. This would be how I identify to PNC, because I have taken our family dog there numerous times for care.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Look into your school BEFORE commiting! There is nothing more frustrating than running around campus like a chicken with your head cut off. Figure out how your school's system works, as far as contacting advisors, and setting up meetings to ensure success. You have to advocate for yourself! Check out your professor's ratings on RateMyProfessor.com to see what former students can offer you as far as who is will enrich your college career, versus blow it off. On day one of class, be overprepared. Be the nerd with sticky notes, and your planner out, ready to jot down important dates. Have highlighters, page markers, and an extra pencil for the kid who forgot one, on hand. Once you surpass syllabus day, find the time to meet your professors 1-on-1. Get to know them, and feel comfortable in asking them for help, because thats what they're there for. There is no time that you DON'T have homework. Time that you don't spend studying is time you are already putting yourself behind. It is always better to be one step ahead! Last but not least, set aside the time to overprepare!

What's unique about your campus?

The support system PNC has to offer is remarkable compared to the first university I began at. Inlcuding professors, and SI tutors working under professors, there is a substatial difference in how they handle their classes as well as prepare their students for success. Being able to get a near-immediate response from either an advisor, professor, or tutor, makes all the difference when you're a freshman on campus still trying to learn the ropes.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, I would say one thing. Relax. As the salutatorian of my senior class, I am naturally competitive in my schooling and want to be the best that I can be. I had the preconceived notion that college would be filled with classmates who only want to do well for themselves. That is not the case at all. With only one semester of college under my belt I already have great friends who are so helpful if I am ever struggling with understanding a concept. It is extremely comforting to know that I'm not in this college experience along. I would tell myselft that making friends comes easy as long as you stay true to yourself and keep your best interests at heart. I would also tell myself that I would be on track to graduate with a Bachelor's degree a year early, and that hard work really does pay off!

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I honestly think that Purdue University North Central is a great school for anybody. The Professors and staff are beyond accommodating to any needs that a student may have. Since the class sizes are so small, students are almost guaranteed to receive any extra help they may need, as well as genuinely getting to know their classmates. I can't think of any kind of person that shouldn't attend this school.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Purdue University- North Central is most known for it's name in the academic world. Because it is a branch of the main Purdue, it too is considered an excellent school to attend. It has wonderful academic options and many activities in which students could get involved in. The school has made a name for itself for being just a branch of the main and it is living up to that name.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Thinking back to high school, it seems so far away. Though it were just last year, the amount of change I have gone through has been tremendous. Moving away from home, being in a place I have never been and learning how EXPENSIVE everything is has been tough. I would tell myself that it may seem hard at first and being away from home is a little depressing but it is all worth it and you will be glad that you came this far in life. I would advise myself to save up as much as I could because money goes quick when paying for everything. As for schooling, I would tell myself that it doesn't seem much different from high school but that doesn't mean slack off because the work load will sometimes catch you off-guard and you may not be ready for it because you have been slacking. However, the most important thing I would tell myself is to just live it up, being in college has and will make you so much stonger and independent and it will for sure give you the chance to find yourself away from everything you're used to.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I always end up telling all my friends about the close-knit atmosphere. I talk about how it is a small school and how that really helps bring the teachers much closer to the students. Because there are only three buildings and the school does not have as many students as other colleges, the class sizes are much smaller. This gives the teachers a chance to actually take the time to teach one-on-one with a student if they need help. The teachers are so helpful and I couldn't imagine going to a bigger school after being here.
