What would you tell prospective students about Purdue?

It is a great place to meet people and to lay the foundation for your future.

What is the most interesting thing you’ve learned or seen as a tour guide at Purdue?

On the bell tower the "4" is IIII instead of IV. Students like to joke that this is because "IV" resembles IU, but the artist chose IIII because it balanced the VIII more.

The garden by the horticulture building.
