When I attended Purdue there were only 12K students. Now that number exceeds 40K. A world leader in so many fields. Purdue athletics may suck but this is one great university. Visit the University bookstore to buy your Purdue goodies.

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!

Purdue is a great place to visit as a family for the numerous activities on campus, including sporting events. The campus is full of well manicured greenery and superb for walking. Students have the best of it with the outstanding dorms and apartments within walking distance to campus. There is plenty of shopping on campus. The food courts are absolutely... More

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.
