Our daughter just finished her first year at Purdue and loves it. The campus is large but manageable, beautiful and fun to visit. Has the Big Ten sports but really nice, laid back students and locals.

Enjoyed revisiting Purdue since last visit 40 years prior. We were there for graduation and dined off campus. No a lot to offer near campus for drinks and eats.

Went on a college visit. Very informative and everybody was very friendly and welcoming. Expensive for out of state students, but it has a good academic atmosphere and typical College feel. Large campus but very walkable once you know where you are going.

The best university ever. OK, that may be a tad bit of hyperbole, but then again we may be a bit biased. Closing in on a half century since we first attended here, and having passed 40 years since being married here, objective we may...More

A great university with a broad array students from far and wide. This is a typical Midwestern Big 10 school in a modest sized town. The campus is beautiful with top notch facilities, most especially in engineering and the sciences. Plenty of places to eat....More

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.
