We visited the Krannert school management which looks we just left in 1983. But the connected the building to the rawl hall and the executive learning centers which is nicely done. New athletic facilities for track and field, soccer and golf are all. First class🏂, several school were upgrading their dogs which was nice. Disappointed that the restaurants give so... More

If you like strolling around big campuses just like me, here is a place where you should certainly go. I really like this university's campus because the buildings are really old historical buildings. You can see purdue memorial hall, the purdue bell tower. You can shop at purdue store in purdue memorial hall. There is also a farmer's market in... More

We visited the campus on a recent trip. The campus was nice. We enjoyed our tour around the area as well. The athletic ground are nice and the football field was being repaired.

Purdue Tour included walking around campus, including some dorm buildings, academic buildings, rec center, and mock dorm room. The dorms varied quite a bit from No AC to suites. The mock room included beds, dresser and desks. You had to rent fridge/microwave and it cost $100 to loft bed. We sat thru an admission presentation and then headed to the... More

i grew up in WL, a graduate of WLHS. you couldnt ask for a much better place to grow up. i believe purdue has graduated more engineers than any other university in the world? still? other than their current athletics being in the doldrums, this is a great place to live and get an education.

I have lived in this town the past 25 years. I took several classes and earned an advanced degree at Purdue University. I have to say, something, maybe get it off my chest after all these years, but it is a large campus to walk around. A bike is necessary for students.Parking spaces are at a premium, even for visitors,... More

Purdue University is a great place to get a college education. President Mitch Daniels is doing a great jpb at keeping tuition fees and locked in at set rate. I'm a 25 year resident of this area and I have seen it all. M. Daniels is perfect for this position because he is "for the students" and your kids educational... More

The education my child is receiving appears to be excellent but I'm concerned about the lack of diversity, I know that there are always going to be issues at any school but Purdue needs to have more classes or discussions about the importance of tolerance and diversity and treating others with respect. Education-wise, I feel that my child will be... More
