I attended a conference at Purdue University over 30 years ago so the visit today brought back some fond memories and the facility is spectacular. Grounds are well maintained with great monuments and old buildings really make Purdue a wonderful place to visit and see

I was recently staying at a hotel that was close to the Purdue Campus so I took the opportunity to do a little driving and walking through the area. The campus layout is perfect for a student that is considering to live on campus, it appears that everything is so close and a student could literally walk to class and... More

We really enjoyed our tour and visit. It's definitely in a very rural area with many cornfields. However, there is a sufficient amount of hotels, restaurants, and stores in Lafayette.

Went on a college tour with my son & was prepared to love Purdue...but I was underwhelmed! The college has beautiful old buildings, but many are in need of serious TLC on the inside (the auditorium with the beautiful mural had large chunks of ceiling pealing off, other building had broken stair rails, fixtures & signs, an auditorium style class...

Came to Purdue Campus with my Cousin, while on a visit form Iowa. She took me to the campus to see the Neil Armstrong building. I was very impressed with the whole campus. There was a lot of work going on, to some of the buildings and other places. Yet it was still a well kept campus, clean and alive!... More

A quick stop at the visitor center, located in the Memorial Union in the heart of campus, will give you an introduction to Purdue's prominence in engineering and aerospace. A few blocks to the south at the Dauch Alumni Center there are displays about prominent alumni, including the first and last man to walk on the moon. And a few... More

Was recently at Purdue and West Lafayette to escort my son to a summer Engineering program. We both were very impressed with what we saw and experienced. First, the campus is beautiful. It has a mixture of older buildings with contemporary ones. The Neil Armstrong Hall is a must to see. The grounds are beautifully taken care of, lush grassy... More

My daughter and I are touring colleges. Being from MI, we were both pleasantly surprised that we enjoyed Purdue. The campus layout with academic buildings to the East and dorms to the West is very convenient.
