For the most part I like PNW. There are some amazing professors here that are willing to do anything to help you not only succeed but to help you excel in your schoolwork. The campus is kinda small, but very nice. The grounds are very well kept and are very nice to walk though.

I haven't officially started yet but so far Purdue has been up front about everything I need to do and how to do it. They are very helpful and I can not wait to start next week.

Purdue Calumet is close to home and is accessible to me. However, as a commuter school cliques don't tend to grow very large, this makes having a close knit group of friends possible.
