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

Purdue is nice to see visit when flowers are blooming and the kids love the fountains. We enjoy the old buildings, it is nice to walk or run around.

Well, what more can I say. I went to college here and it was the best experience I have had! I have a degree in Hospitality and I am currently successfully working in that industry. I credit my success to the things that I learned during my time at Purdue. Boiler Up!

I know that it isn't exactly considered the best looking university but it is still number one in my mind. Love this place and always will. Always something to do in the area.

This is a beautiful campus yet a little hard to drive around with the one way roads. Plus there's a lot of construction going on. Purdue is a wonderful school!!

Not a bad college town, quaint amd filled with its own unique places/traditions. However nothing to special here, just another Midwest College (and a good one at that). Only worth visiting if you are looking at attending Purdue.
