Purdue University Northwest - Westville Campus Reviews
The environment at Purdue University Northwest - Westville Campus is outstanding. I have yet to attend a class due to being an incoming freshman, but the environment and social scene is outstanding. Everyone on campus is very helpful and respectful. PNW’s scene is located in Westville between Michigan City and Valparaiso. You don’t have to travel very far to find something fun to do. Going to PNW is the best decision for me as I can commute from home and have a job while going to school. I plan on enjoying my time at PNW.
It's a small campus, manicured and non intimidating. I have completed one full school year there so far, my reviews are a bit mixed. When I transferred I didn't find the classes to be challenging. The professors I've had have been well versed in their courses, personable and seem to sincerely enjoy teaching in a smaller classroom setting. There are numerous support programs for students that are all free, including counseling and tutoring. Since it's a commuter campus there are an extraordinarily large amount of sitting spots throughout campus for students to study and relax. Overall, I look forward to completing my undergrad program there.
For the most part I love PNC(now PNW), the people that I am in classes with are great and make amazing study partners. Most all of the professors are accommodating and understanding and really want their students to succeed. I love the fact that the classes aren't huge yet aren't small it gives you one on one time with your professors and makes it to where students don't feel nervous to ask questions in class and have their learning needs met!
