Call me biased, since PU is my Alma Mater but I see so many new a different things every time I venture there (less than 5 mi. from my new house!) The sculpture, fountains, foodcourts, library and many cultural events makes PU a place to visit for all ages!

Our daughter has been interested in Purdue and West Lafayette since 9th grade. On paper, she felt it was a good community and a good fit for her, but since we live in AZ, that was all based on internet research. This fall (her junior year), we decided to check it out in person - along with 5 other midwestern... More

The campus is huge, the professor's are amazing, the education is great. It is good to be part of such an amazing university. The life on campus is amazing, if you are passing by then I will definitely suggest you to get a guided tour of the campus, where you can know the history and amazing facts about the campus.

I've spent in West Lafayette (and Indiana in general) 4 years of my life. At the beginning, after I moved there from Phoenix, AZ, I was cursing the place for it being so isolated and cold. However, while working on my bachelor degree, I fell in love with the place. Purdue is especially beautiful in Fall and Spring. At these... More

Great Walking University. Enjoy a day on campus, plenty to see, sports and arts. Hotels and restaurants are driving not walking distance.
