Purdue University hosts an impressive array of events and activities for visitors, the community, students and employees. I have had the pleasure of both attending Purdue as a student and currently working as a staff member. For visitors, if you aren't visiting for a specific event, campus is simply beautiful to walk around and enjoy. Start at the Memorial Union... More

We were here for the Fall Preview Day. We love the beautiful campus! Short walks to where you need to be. The students were friendly and helpful, and the staff was super nice. The student union was really neat with the bowling alley and eateries. We would be proud for our son to attend here!

This review is pretty biased. My husband & I are both alumns. The campus is beautiful. If you're there on a weekend, you may get lucky & have the Boiler Express pick you up.

We took two days and toured the campus with my daughter, who is interested in attending. Beautiful campus, easy to walk (but HUGE). If you're thinking about Engineering? This is the place to visit.

As a three-time Purdue alumnus who returns periodically for the Big Ten Grad Expo. I am amazed and very proud of the many excellent facilities that have been added to campus. Purdue is a world-class university!
