Felt a disconnect. didn't really make a lot of friends. went to school and went home
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.
I am preparing for graduate study because although I am in a self-employment family, my life goal is to conduct research toward our astonishing world. I am participating in this contest because I will have to find scholarship and financial aid opportunities on my own for my graduate study. During my graduate study I will get my Professional Engineering Test tested as well. First year engineering course is competitive, but it is really great. Your academic pursuit is the most important thing during your undergraduate study. Convince yourself the goals for the new semester every week and every day, it is your responsibility that you set goals for yourself. Demonstrate strong resolution to earn a good grade for every course, and enjoy your college study. Your peers and professors lecturing are all truely amazing people.
Purdue is a very technical and research oriented school. While the classes are very rigorous and challenging, they truly prepare you for whatever career path you choose. Many of the professors want you to succeed and push you to reach your potential. The student body is very diverse, and there is a club for any interest or hobby you may have. Purdue is also a Big Ten school, so the sports atmosphere is awesome. Purdue's rigor will challenge you to your breaking point, but it will prepare for anything you want to do in life.
I'm about 2/3 of the way finished with Purdue's online MS in Communication program. In all, I'd say I'm pretty pleased with it. The instructors are very smart and thoughtful -- although be mindful that it's not the same faculty that they have on-campus, as they've advertised in their marketing of the program. That said, I've been very happy with the quality of the instructors overall. The degree requires a good deal of work, but it's really fulfilling and, for the most, relevant to my current career in marketing/PR. One huge plus about the program is the structure. You only take one, 8-week, intensive class at a time. From a work/school balance standpoint, it's a great system. My only complaint would be that the technology they use for the degree isn't always great. They require students to use video presentation software that, frankly, doesn't even work. So expect hours of headaches every single time you need to present material to your classmates. Great program otherwise!
Well-run state school. Great degrees in the sciences and business. Less useful for pure creative arts. Very conservative, for a college, but has decent gender diversity.
I had a great experience at Purdue, and found the graduate teaching program in math to be beneficial to my career as an educator
I was very happy with my college experience. A degree from Purdue University has helped with potential job offers. I was able to transfer colleges and degrees without a problem when I finally settled on Purdue and OLS as a major.
Purdue University has the vibe of an All-American school from the movies. The red brick buildings serve as a backdrop to rigorous engineering academics and the frenzy of school spirit on game days. I couldn't imagine going anywhere else. Boiler up!
Purdue provided an excellent undergraduate experience.
