Purdue University Fort Wayne Reviews
I am currently a student at Purdue University Fort Wayne, and the atmosphere makes you feel welcomed! When I was first applying to college, I had no clue where I wanted to attend and thought about taking a gap year. I applied to this campus without any thought, and eventually started classes at Purdue Fort Wayne majoring in Human Services. My department professors are truly wonderful as they help me with any questions or concerns I have regarding anything. It's a small diverse university that gives you a great education for a lot less than some other universities.
I love this school! The students enrolled make you feel welcomed and comfortable like you have always gone to school there. The staff wants and drives each day to help you become successful, even in the hardest topics. There is free tutoring and help all around campus. PFW has a ton of diversity and people from all over. It's a great place to start the next step.
The facilities are nicely updated and kept clean. There are many areas for quiet studying as well as group studying. Many of the faculty are caring and will work with you to enable your success. Most of the professors in my experience are helpful, flexible, and encouraging; while still supporting you and your goals even after you are no longer taking their class!
