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.
