Love attending Purdue University. It is located in West Lafayette, Indiana. My experience with Greek life was a disastrous. Several houses acted and said they wanted me as a member and then cut me during rush. I think they should be honest with girls upfront that you only have about a 1 in 4 chance to make it into a house.

I have had great experiences there and always have a good time when I am there. The campus is gorgeous, and very easy to find things.

So far I love Purdue, it has given me great educational opportunities and challenges. While some classes are not run very effectively, overall the curriculum is rock-solid.
