Indiana is a boring state with not much

Dec 05 2013Chemistry
Indiana is a boring state with not much to do, but this campus is just awful. People are either getting drunk at the local bars or are inside playing video games.

The majority of professors are unhelpful and have horrible teaching skills, and at least half learned English as their second language.Most of the school work isn't challenging at all, it's just busywork with unreasonable grading policies. Math however is quite difficult at Purdue, but that's because the professors are useless.

The professors and coursework has made my stay

Nov 29 2012Biology
The professors and coursework has made my stay at Purdue some of the very worst times in my life. I have been told by professors that I was not good enough, dumb, didn't belong here, was a failure at life, was too creative, and that I should drop out. There were a few nice ones (especially in the Agricultural school) but mainly they were condescending, hateful, and very upset they were teaching instead of being in lab doing research. The advising staff tells you outright incorrect things, which ended up costing me an extra semester here. If you would like to go to Purdue. be prepared to work, and work hard. If you have a learning disability (Like I do) think twice. The professors WILL NOT work with you, and in some cases will mock you.

There are SOOO many scams

There are SOOO many scams.
You will get an email from ECS (IT department) about how you have illegally downloaded a movie, you will then get message from a hotmail account telling you that for $1000 they can make it go away.

Parking is 100% a scam. There are 200X the number of parking passes than parking spaces.
Once you graduate they will inform you that you require another class, usually an independent study or some non-course work that requires you just pay them more money. They will hold your degree hostage until you pay.

You would think you could call the police but they Purdue police department are first and foremost Purdue employees. They are there to protect the University from you, not the other way around.

Most T.As don't speak English.
Many professors don't speak English.You pretty much already have to know all of the material and prove it by taking their tests because they aren't going to teach you.
