Parents of Future Students
The College of Health and Human Sciences (HHS) at Purdue University values parents as partners for student success. No matter where you are in the college admissions process, this is an exciting time for you and your family!
Your child may be the one heading off to college, but the entire family is experiencing the journey. Your child, who has already accomplished so much, will be challenged with more opportunities for personal growth and intellectual development than ever before. You’ve given your child wings, and now it’s time for him or her to fly!
Why Health and Human Sciences?
Purdue’s College of Health and Human Sciences is a world-leader in education and research. Within HHS, your child will learn from world-class faculty and gain support from outstanding staff who are committed to student success. The growth of many majors within HHS is outpacing the national average, and the Center for Career Opportunities (ranked #3 in the nation by CollegeMagazine.com) as well as our Career Development Specialist continually work to expand opportunities for HHS students. Purdue’s strength in preparing students for the workforce is evidenced by being ranked No. 4 in preparing students for the workforce by the Wall Street Journal and No. 8 among U.S. universities in graduates’ long-term payback versus college cost by SmartMoney magazine.
We encourage your student to take the next step in becoming a member of the HHS family and joining 55,000 living alumni who improve health and enhance the quality of life for individuals around the world by scheduling a visit to HHS.
