Overall Experience: Nursing is hard but I'm learning so much. The classes are small. I have been able to be apart of several study groups with other nursing students and have a mentor. There are a lot of resources available to help you be successful. Purdue has a tough academic history, so you have to be driven and utilize what's available.

Overall Experience: It's harder in the medical field with all the laws but am loving the clinicals. My brother, who was in ag, had no problem finding internships and loved the networking they have for the ag program.

Overall Experience: You can make it as big or as small as you want it.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Transportation ends early. Parties and bars are always options. Most parties are on Thursday nights. Most people go to the bars on Fridaays and the weekends.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The party scene is mostly at fraternities. You don't have to take part, but greek peroiple are always talking about them and how drunk they were at them.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics at Purdue are truly excellent. Most companies will search for students with Purdue educations and finding a job after school is relatively easy. With that being said, the courses are quite difficult, and you have to study a lot to be competitive in bell curve grading.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Really, most people are accepted. Only a minority challenge students that do not fall under the norm.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Visibility is low, most drinking and drugs are done at fraternity parties and are out of sight from non greek students. If you know someone, then you will be able to get in tot one of these parties.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, Purdue is pretty great, there are tons of different opportunities here and the academics are top notch. Professors know what they are talking about, but sometimes are not the best at relaying that information to students.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There is a lot of stress from classes, but a Purdue degree is highly sought after in many industries. The industrial roundtable is held here yearly and is one of the biggest job fairs in the nation!

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It is so convienient to live on campus. I have done it two years in a row and i hope to become a resident assistant next year so that I can continue to live on campus and maintain the ease of getting around to classes.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It is a situation where if you don't mess with them, they do not mess with you. I like how they do not intrude on my life and campus does ot really revolve around them.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is a lot of school spirit. WE still cheer on our football team that sometinmes isnt the best but it is always good fun to go and see any sports game. There are many opportunities to do intramural sports, but the is no requirement for those that do not want to prticipate in them.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have a lot of school pride. I think there are so many different opportunities here at my school. I have wonderful friends and people are for the most part very focused and friendly to one another. I have a sense that everyone is here to help one another over just competing with one another.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Hard Classes, lots of options, medium size classes depends what level you're at, pretty good profs, foreign TA's are hard to understand though.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Best place on earth honestly

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: We have on campus security while the campus is open. That includes weekends and late nights.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I was impressed with the application/entrance experience overall. Everything from the start looked at me as a person and worked with me to work out the best possible plan.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Extremely close to campus, but the price can be an issue if finances are an issue. I do not live on campus.

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.
