College visit seemed very disorganized -- lost our reservation and couldn't recover. Sent us out in the rain for a "self-guided" tour. Saved by the Engineering department and two VERY helpful students.

Purdue has multiple dining halls offering great variety of food. One needs a car to drive around the huge campus.

It had been several decades since I had visited my undergraduate school. Strolling the campus was most enjoyable. I was struck by the growth, breadth, depth, and beauty on a brisk fall Sunday afternoon. The new buildings fit in wonderfully with the old. The Memorial...More

The Purdue campus and football field are very exciting. The Hampton Inn has pictures of the campus everywhere. Very exciting atmosphere with black and gold beads to wear at the game.

Spent some time at Purdue University recently. What a great place! Starting with a magnificent campus and excellent layout and ending with efficient management, it's a well-run school. A well-spent $44, 000 per annum!

We went to an open house. I would contact Purdue Admissions and see if they give you an escort, or guidance. It is a large beautiful campus and you may have specific points you want to see. It's like a small city.
