| I love it here at Purdue. The industry connections and reputation are simply amazing. Already in my freshman year I have had several large companies inquiring about me and asking for my resume. I will be working at a large aircraft engine company beginning in my soph year. I don't feel this would have been the case if I had went to UIUC or IU.|
The social life here is pretty good as long as you know some people in frats, otherwise there are always sporting events to go to every night. You will find a way to have fun, even if you have no frat connections.
Coming to a big university, I was kind of expecting to be just a face in the crowd, but that's not the case. I am in the Freshmen Engineering Honors program, and both my advisors and my professors know me by name. This makes the size of the school feel a lot smaller and more friendly. However, Purdue is very expensive for out of staters, so if you aren't in engineering or you're not committed to engineering, go someplace else.

| This school is very broad in all aspects. The people are diverse and friendly. Teachers are easily accessible and are usually friendly about any questions you have. I think though the people tend to be a bit shy but this is coming from a freshman who has classes with mostly freshmen so think what you will. The only big problem is the weather, it's really hot in the summer and really cold and windy in the winter. The town of west lafayette is kinda dull but it forces you to meet more people and be more creative in your social activities. There are lots of clubs/sports (crew, soccor, polo, band, fantasy club, drama club, etc.) and plenty of greek and co-op houses to join. It's just a nice/fun school in my opinion. Well that's it. |
