Being a scholar at Purdue I have known a lot of open-minded, friendly people around. Very healthy environment for students and educators. Many places to learn independently, using labs and open libraries, many places to eat solo or with friends.

Boiler up! Campus was gorgeous as always. Football parking needs to be better. With so much road construction going on, parking 1 1/2 miles from the stadium is ridiculous.

We attended the "I'm with Her" concert at the Loeb Playhouse in the Stewart Center. The auditorium was on the smaller side, which means all of the seats were good. The acoustics were great (and the music) and the seats were easily accessible and comfortable.

Came back after 20 years and it was still home. The campus has grown a ton with newer builders but still offers that small town feel. Love how the campus is separate from city but has all the amenities a college student needs from Chauncey...More

This is a beautiful university--just perfect setting for learning. It is large and requires lots of walking, electric scooters, bikes or other transportation than car. Helps to have a guide. Education is great too!

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.
