I cannot love Purdue more! Great campus, great education. My only issue is how Chauncey Hill has really gone downhill (no pun intended). It needs to be cleaned up -- sidewalks and stores. The stores look trashy and there is too my litter.

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.
