Drove around campus to see the older buildings and fraternity houses, stadiums. The older buildings are so impressive. This is a great campus.

Our daughter is in middle school, but Purdue has been reaching out to encourage girls to pursue STEM career fields. we have met many wonderful people affiliated with the university. The buildings are very well maintained and it seems to be a place for great learning!

Took my son and daughter to visit Purdue University. We were lucky to get into a campus tour at 930am at the Union Memorial Welcome Center. Visitor Parking is right across the street, Campus bookstore next door (got my Purdue Engineering T-shirt -- I mean, my son's t-shirt!). Our Guide was KEVIN K.!! from Tinley Park, IL ECON Major!!

Purdue University is a large campus with an intimate feeling to it. We walked around until after dark and felt safe and almost at home on our first visit. Loved the fountains and sculptures, especially liked the "clap circles." We were there at the beginning of summer, so I'm certain it is much busier when those thousands of students get... More

Purdue has a nice campus; there were quite a few student (?) guides about giving directions which was nice. The stadium is OK with the special section in the West Stadium for John Purdue Club members bein great (we were among the very few in red in the section, needless to say). Found free parking on the street just four... More

Beautiful campus, very sympathetic, caring staff - from the helpful person on the phone, to the vet tech. We used them about 20 years ago and were impressed, and are still impressed. Hopefully, we will have the answers we are looking for, but professional, friendly staff all the way!

As a parent of a student, the education choice was a perfect fit. As an amateur gardener, the diversity of the vegetation was a treat. The 'Trees of Purdue' walking tours were a goal for the multiple visits to campus and I completed them all before he graduated. One of his friends who took the horticulture courses showed me around... More

I spent a few weeks at Purdue and I must confess that I felt in love with the University. Besides of having an amazing campus to visit (buildings, parks, streets, stores, restaurants, etc.), most of its people are wondeful. The fact that you can get to know students and professors from all over the world, is hard to explain how... More

In addition to being a top university, Purdue has a wonderful campus to visit. It is an open campus, and many buildings have self-guided tours. For a more formal visit, contact the Development Office.
