I get to Purdue at least twice a year for the last 10 years but had been some time since I came in from the north and rode by the new commercial housing with retail on the bottom floor and apartments or condos. They looked great! Then on past the visible construction on the athletic areas and going to be... More

Absolutely loved visiting this campus. Very clean with lots of places to eat in the area. Very much enjoyed meeting some of the students and visiting the honors dorm. The buildings are beautiful and I enjoyed the visit.

One of the more beautiful college campuses in the country. The fall colors on campus make for some nice scenery. Ross-Ade Stadium and Mackey Arena are right next to each other. The campus is within walking distance to many restaurants, hotels and other businesses in West Lafayette.

This is a very nice campus about an hour north of Indianapolis. There's a nice downtown with some cute restaurants. But that's about it. People are very nice and it's easy to get around.
