WHAT I LIKED

Purdue University is a good school to attend, the environment, people, and culture is probably the best part about attending this university. It's very diverse and you get to see and experience different cultures and people from all over. They have events where you can try the different flavors of the world and engage, overall it's just a great experience for anyone.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

They don't offer every degree , and it's probably best to check which degree you are going for and if they have it.

WHAT I LIKED

College is a scary place to go, it is unfamiliar and you hardly know anyone. But PFW makes it fun and safe! They have multiple resources for you to use and a lot of fun activities to do as well! They have an endless amount of clubs, or that's what it feels like, sports and anything else you can think of and want to do! If you want that amazing "college experience" you have heard about your whole life, go to PFW because I promise you, you will find it here! :)

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only thing I really don't like about PFW is the head of the department not believing students when we try to tell them that a teacher sucks at his job!! And a teacher I have right now but other than that everything is good!

I liked the small campus atmosphere, and the professors are great.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There's limited dining on campus, and student housing has filled up fast in the last few years.

WHAT I LIKED

The staff and faculty are knowledgeable and friendly. There is a diverse student population and a ton of clubs and student orgs to join.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

It is very much a commuter campus. The only type of student housing available is apartment style and it is moderately expensive. There aren’t many food options and no actual dining hall.
