Purdue's multi-billion dollar campaign has resulted in numerous renovations around the campus, including the Recreational Sports Center, the residence hall dining rooms, the computer labs, and the libraries. The athletic facilities are top-notch, with basketball courts, a new aquatics center, an enormous cardiovascular area, tracks, racquetball courts, and more. The libraries have undergone a tremendous overhaul, leaving them streamlined and organized. Purdue Memorial Union is one of the central points on campus, with bowling and billiards in the basement, as well as a large food court with areas to study and hang out with friends. The general consensus of the students is that the facilities, which were not so bad to begin with, have improved by leaps and bounds over the past several years and will continue to do so.
The campus itself is compact, charming, and clean. Although it is large enough to accommodate the over 30,000 attending students, the layout is so well organized that a student can walk from one end of campus to the other within 15 to 20 minutes. The campus is filled with foliage and is particularly lovely during spring. But, for sheer uniqueness, check out Purdue's famous fountains; they're designed to be aesthetically pleasing, but also are fun to run through with a group of friends on a sweltering day.
