Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2010

Overall I had a very good experience at Purdue. All professors are very knowledgeable in their fields, although some are there only for research. I highly recommend getting involved beyond just the normal classroom experience. Excellent campus atmosphere and top notch academics.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2014

Purdue is a place filled with wonderful opportunities. My education there prepared me for my career and gave me the skills necessary to enter law school. My only disappointment is the lax attitude toward diversity and diversity education. Often time minority students do not feel welcome or safe due to hate crimes. The administration says little to nothing about the incidents. Purdue is a wonderful place to get an education, but needs direction when it comes to diversity and inclusion.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2016

Purdue is a great university that tests the abilities of their students. Despite the rigor and high expectations, the degree you obtain ha prepared you above and beyond to compete in the world after graduation. Resources at Purdue are unlimited as well.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2013

Purdue had one of the best communities I have ever seen on a college campus. The mall was alive with students engaged in all sorts of activities when they weren't attending class and the classrooms were filled with eager minds. I found my voice at Purdue as both the manager of the softball team and a member of the Reamer Club (spirit club who takes care of the Boilermaker Special). Between the two jobs I was able to balance 18-20 credit hour semesters, join intramural sports and other clubs, and still have time to give back to the community through school-sponsored events. Purdue University was an incredible school as it not only provided me with endless opportunities but supported and guided my decisions so that I could be the best person when I left.

Degree: Biochemistry
Graduation Year: 2020

I really like the university because not only does it challenge me, but the professors are very helpful, and the student to teacher ratio are pretty small, so the professor knows the students names. Having lived in Indiana for most of my life, I have always heard from family and friends that if I wanted to receive a science degree, I should go to Indiana University (IU). Even after I chose to go to Purdue as a science major, I was asked why I did not got to IU. One of the main reasons I chose to go to Purdue over IU is because I wanted to challenge myself. Getting an A at IU is not as hard as getting an A at Purdue because Purdue University is adamant on not inflating grades. I know that when I receive an A in class at Purdue it will mean so much more than an A in other colleges as they are very like to have inflated their grades. There are very few colleges that do not inflate grades, and Purdue is one of them. When I go to professional school and they will know that I have worked really hard to get the good grades that I got because Purdue is a hard university to get A's in. Every professor that I have had are really helpful. It is easy to tell that the professors where focused on their teaching just as much as they were on their research. At many of the top colleges, it is hard to find a professor who actually cares about the students, and is willing to help them, but at Purdue it is not that hard to find. Also, besides the major courses that everyone has to take, the class sizes are pretty small, and close to what a high school classroom looks like, but the bigger class split up into smaller sections with teaching assistants to it is easy to ask for help. One last reason that I chose to go to Purdue, is because a Purdue degree means something. In the real world when looking for jobs, the name of the college a person went to matters. Although Purdue is known for its engineering program, it also has an amazing science program that is tough in rigor and challenges people to get ready for the real world.

Degree: Industrial Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

Purdue is an amazing school to attend. The Industrial Management program is rigorous, but there are so many opportunities for help from both faculty and other students. There are a lot of financial options available, also. Purdue's Center for Career Opportunities is a great place to get ready for the real world.

Degree: Veterinary/Animal Health Technology/Technician and Veterinary Assistant

Purdue is great school. There are a lot of opportunities available and some of their programs are the best, or among the best, in the country. There are plenty of options for extracurricular activities.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

Purdue School of Nursing prepared me for the field of nursing. Instructors are very hands on and want you to succeed. Faculty is very supportive and are always there for questions. Evidence based research is at the core of the curriculum. The campus is beautiful and offers tons of opportunities for work and leisure.
