Purdue has given me a rough but much-needed educational experience. I struggle for the first time in my life, but I truly believe I am learning. The campus is close together and has tons of study spaces and groups that make passing your classes so much easier.
The seats in the classroom are small.
The campus itself has great facilities and is a short walk, bike or bus ride to the center of town where you can go to other bars or see movies etc. Generally speaking, the community felt convenient.
At the time I was there in 2003-2007, there weren't a lot of great restaurants.
An extensive amount of opportunities and new things to learn that you would never have seen yourself get involved in going into college.
Some people are so involved in their studies that the social experience can be a bit difficult to get into. Especially if you do not live in dorms.
The orientation experience was one I would never forget, and being on campus felt like I was living in a movie. The professors are amazing, and I truly feel like I am getting an education that is going to serve me well in my career. My first year being on campus alone provided me with many opportunities, and there are many ways to connect with other students socially on campus.
I know there was an issue with a police officer on campus and how he intervened in a situation with a student who was of African-American descent.
The opportunity of the Boiler Gold Rush opened many doors for me to find many friends. The availability of student resources fosters academic excellence and inspires me to never be afraid to receive help.
The individual course is extremely rigorous! I believe it is a new level of difficulty. Exams across the board are heavily weighed per each question, so for every question you get wrong, your grade for the exam can drop almost a letter grade.
I love the campus; it's a very beautiful and well-kept campus. A lot of people complain about the dorms, but my experience with the dorms has been very positive. The food is good, but there's not a lot of vegetables and fruits, which is a downside. The coursework is challenging, but I like that.
The dining court food and the retail food don't have a lot of fruits and vegetables, so it's a little bit hard to keep a healthy diet. There are a lot of people here, which is good for studying, but bad for trying to find a study spot or waiting in the food lines.
