4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: so far it's been great! I live, work & attend PUC Calumet. I've met "lifetime" friends already and really enjoy the atmosphere. Purdue Cal is in my hometown and I like it that way because I need to be close to my parents because my dad's health isn't very good and if I'm needed for any help from them, I'm right here! the college is clean & the grounds are well kept and very nicely planted. My school is unique because I like everything about it.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far I have discovered that college is not necessarily the right choice for everyone. There is a part of me that wishes I had just gone into the army and waited to go work on college. I feel like at this early in my life I have no real idea of what I want to do for the rest of my life and making me pick a major and pay for this education this soon is kind of wasteful. I really wish that there was some better system of doing things instead so that freshman in college aren't forced to pick a major but are rather sent out into the real world to gain experience in a field they are considering so that way by sophomore or junior year they feel confident in the major they are choosing.

Overall Experience: My school isn't bad. It's a good school, it's just extremely boring and does not keep my attention. I also found out that my school does not do teachers certifications, so I am looking for other schools to transfer to

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have gone to Purdue Calumet for three years! It is an amazing school, and the campus is really on a whole new level. HDFS and Psychology majors will especially love the courses, professors, and materials that will be at their disposal!

Overall Experience: Surprisingly big for smaller Purdue school very affordable. Professors are always willing to work one on one with you for extra help. Always have tutors in classes in case you need help. The programs at Purdue Calumet Hammond are great and there's a major for everyone. The athletic facilities are top of the line and improving yearly. What sets Purdue Cal from other schools is the professors they care about their students and really want us to succeed.

Overall Experience: There's always someone to talk to or to help with problems (in school/out of school). Most classes are fun and informative. I would choose this school because it is close to my home, and it really is a great school. There are always activities on campus or movies playing in the student lounge during down time. There are plenty of computers on campus to do homework during the breaks. Scheduling is easy and if there is problems the staff is always helpful.
