3 College Freshman

Majors: I'm getting an internship after my freshman year that pays 16.25 an hour. So not bad.

4 College Freshman

Majors: It's tough but I'm learning a lot in just my freshman year.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's cheaper than living in the residence halls plus you have more freedom.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Our teams suck so it's not that fun to go to games. But still a lot of people do anyways.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Peer pressure is not really existent - if you don't want to drink that's your choice

2 College Freshman

Weather: It snows in April and it is insanely hot in the August - September months. Some dorms don't have air conditioning.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Pretty much just average dining. It's a little far away from the dorms but there are some restaurants fairly close.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Most people don't really care either way if you're part of the greek community.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Not really that strict at all. Lots of people drink a lot in their dorms and nobody really cares as long as people are being safe. The only officer I've ever talked to was very easy to get along with because I treated him with respect.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: PUSH is really easy to use and has always been fast when I've been there. I've never once felt unsafe on campus.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: Pretty much all the partying goes on in the greek community. There are house parties but you can't just walk into any random place usually.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Some people use the buses nearly every day but the campus is pretty small so you don't necessarily need to.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Not too many attractions nearby. A bunch of concrete.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Coming from a country filled with endless variety of food, I definitely suffer from the lack of variety.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Definitely not too strict, or may have not experience much events.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have yet to get involved in the Greek Life, so I am most likely unknown to it.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: The buses are convenient and free, but definitely not enough on weekends.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Dont notice many problems with this

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

All hail to the old gold and black! Students could not have been more glowing in their praise about their time at Purdue University. Boilermakers unanimously appreciate all the opportunities that are afforded to students at a Big Ten university. From the thriving social scene to the academics, to the prestige of a Purdue diploma to the lifelong friends, Purdue students are grateful for their time in the heartland of the Midwest, and none could dream of having attended school anywhere else. As with anything in life, there are positives and negatives to any situation, but it appears that the benefits of being a Boilermaker greatly outweigh everything else.

The sheer size of Purdue may intimidate those students who feel that they will never be more than a number at Purdue, but as students have pointed out, there’s a niche here for everyone. If the chance to be top dog is what you desire from a college, you won’t find that here. But if you’re looking for a world-class education, the chance to meet people from all different walks of life, and hundreds of ways to become involved in University life, Purdue is the school for you. It is fun and exciting. It’s an opportunity to spend four (or more) meaningful years with 30,000 other people your age. And if you’re willing to accept all the opportunities a Big Ten university can throw your way, it will be a great ride.
