After 3 decades, I returned to the Purdue Campus. There are many new buildings, but they blend perfectly with the old buildings; not much you can do with red brick. The main thing that I noticed was the amount of trees on the campus, as...More

College visit seemed very disorganized -- lost our reservation and couldn't recover. Sent us out in the rain for a "self-guided" tour. Saved by the Engineering department and two VERY helpful students.

Purdue has multiple dining halls offering great variety of food. One needs a car to drive around the huge campus.

We went to an open house. I would contact Purdue Admissions and see if they give you an escort, or guidance. It is a large beautiful campus and you may have specific points you want to see. It's like a small city.
