Purdue University Reviews
My experience at Purdue has been great! At Purdue, students are offered great opportunities to participate in research, student led organizations, and extra curricular activities on throughout the year. Because Purdue is a research university, students and faculty definitely can develop a rapport that fosters a students growth in obtaining certain knowledge and skills. Purdue also offers many great opportunities for students to develop leadership through becoming members of one of the hundreds organizations on campus. Lastly, Purdue students can attend many sports events whether it be for the school's football team or even an intramural team game. Purdue has may eateries and study spots so people can meet up for lunch or dinner then study for upcoming exams. Together, Purdue is a great school for people to cultivate connections and develop necessary leadership skills for their careers and in life.
Purdue is well known for their math and science curriculum and the material is rigorous. However, it is worth it because all of the faculty and staff care about you and your success. For such a large university, you would think it would be hard to find a helping hand, but not at Purdue. They provide the utmost amount of support and guidance, and it makes you feel like an important individual in a vast sea of more than 40,000 students. The layout of the campus was ingeniously designed, considering Purdue is an engineering powerhouse, this is a reassuring fact. Lastly, the diversity at Purdue makes it easy to build your network, which becomes wildly relevant post-graduation when searching for a start to your career. Overall, an outstanding university. Boiler Up!
Rigorous engineering coursework, do your homework it really makes a difference! Teaching assistants are usually very helpful and most professors answer questions in class and over email which is super helpful. The dining courts are nice, use the app to see the menus for each dining court each day. Fun atmosphere, the student council puts on fun free events for students every month or so! The libraries are the best place to study. I loved my science labs they are fun but also teach the material.
