4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Fore the most part faculty members are great and I feel like they truly care about the students. Housing options are kind of boring and there isn't much variety. The food is good, however, the options get old with time. I feel like I am getting my money's worth by attending this school.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My freshman year I chose to go to the University of Minnesota Duluth, and I chose this school without even really getting to do research on it or even seeing it. I chose this school because my mom agreed to help me pay for school if I went there and the tuition was cheap, and I would still be close to my family. Looking back on it, I really do wish that I had gotten to do more research on schools and that I would have had more emotional support from my family when it came to branching out to schools out of state. My entire freshman year I researched schools across the nation, and some still close to home, and I decided on Purdue University. I am now extremely happy with my choice and recently got accepted for transfer, for Fall 2015. Purdue is the perfect fit for me because they are a school that focuses on the students and what our career outlook will be after we graduate; they have plenty of job fairs for each major and they have classes to help you build your resume and become a better candidate. Besides the fact that I feel like Purdue will prepare me best for joining the workforce, the community and the environment of the school is what really drew to it. The campus is beautiful and part of a nice, not too big city, and there are so many different types of student organizations that you can join to help you make friends and connections. If I could do it all over again my freshman year, I would have broadened my search and gone on more tours, regardless of family support, because my education is an investment and I want to to feel comfortable with and proud of an investment that I make in myself.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
