“College Visit”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

We arrived and found parking very convenient at the deck across from the student union where the tours left from. We did not have a reservation and the folks in the admissions office were very accommodating about getting us in a tour. The first part of the tour emphasized academic life and lasted about 1 hour. The second part emphasized student life and dorm life and also lasted about an hour . After the tour, we ate at a restaurant in the basement of the union. There are several restaurants there with food for about any taste. Very good introduction to the school.

“My school”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Purdue is an academic powerhouse where I did a 3-year postdoc with H. C. Brown (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1979). I was also a visiting assistant professor at Purdue for one year. I received an excellent education there, and I am eternally grateful for the experience.

“BoilerUp at Purdue!!”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

Not only is this a wonderful university, academically and campus wise, it is an experience like no other to go to a basketball game in Mackey Arena. Be sure to go into the Purdue Union, experience the Purdue music (everything from choirs to a variety of bands) and walk around campus! There is a wonderful SPRING FEST along with other special campus activities. Spring Fest is perfect for families ( a chance to taste bugs, put your hand in the side of a cow, sample bee honey and try your skills at a variety of activities). Also fun is Grand Prix (also in the spring) a loud go cart race - it's own mini Indy 500!! Classic buildings, awesome academics - you'll love your PURUDE experience!

“Beautiful campus”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

The campus is awesome! If you are in West Lafayette go take a ride or walk inside the campus. Places you need to go: PMU and squares.
