Great Walking University. Enjoy a day on campus, plenty to see, sports and arts. Hotels and restaurants are driving not walking distance.

The campus is spread over 800 acres and home to student from many countries. They have very good facilities in every field. New student orientation programme is very helpful.

Admitted my daughter to Purdue University's Engineering programme fall 2015. Attended the parents orientation during BGRI. Was very impressed with the beautiful buildings with "state of the art" technologies. Within the university campus are many fountains, gardens and art work amidst clean and green surroundings, with large expanse of manicured lawns where students can engage in various activities in a...

We visited the Krannert school management which looks we just left in 1983. But the connected the building to the rawl hall and the executive learning centers which is nicely done. New athletic facilities for track and field, soccer and golf are all. First class🏂, several school were upgrading their dogs which was nice. Disappointed that the restaurants give so... More

If you like strolling around big campuses just like me, here is a place where you should certainly go. I really like this university's campus because the buildings are really old historical buildings. You can see purdue memorial hall, the purdue bell tower. You can shop at purdue store in purdue memorial hall. There is also a farmer's market in... More

The mock room included beds, dresser and desks. You had to rent fridge/microwave and it cost $100 to loft bed. We sat thru an admission presentation and then headed to the... More

i grew up in WL, a graduate of WLHS. you couldnt ask for a much better place to grow up. i believe purdue has graduated more engineers than any other university in the world? still? other than their current athletics being in the doldrums, this is a great place to live and get an education.
