Purdue University - Main Campus Reviews
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.
I loved Purdue University! Incredibly diverse, wide range of career options, great atmosphere.
Purdue is a great school, both academically and socially. It is well-respected and has lots to offer both with classes and extra-curricular activites.
Campus, Classes, Students, and professors, all resembled a family feel and mid-west polite attitudes. The university is highly regarded and boasts programs that rank top in their field
I enjoyed the program and the school. The later courses did a reasonable job exposing students to a variety of languages as well. The biggest drawback while I attended was there wasn't much of a focus on web development or things like scalable back end services. Beyond the classes Purdue is a great university to get the full college experience.
