What do you like about the Purdue community that you might not have found by attending another institution?

One thing I enjoy about Purdue is the feeling of community. No matter what program you find yourself in you are not alone. My best friends today first began as my classmates and study partners. At Purdue, coursework establishes common ground between students.

Beyond academics, a similar level of unity translates to Purdue's many student organizations. The organizations on campus are so well developed that by getting involved, I was able to quickly become part of a bigger network. It has been the foundation for friendships, support networks, and connections that have provided me with various opportunities throughout my time at Purdue.

In what ways is Purdue safe/do members of the Purdue community make you feel like you are safe?

On top of a wonderful engineering program and support system, Purdue is an incredibly safe community. I have always felt at home, especially after I became familiar with the campus. As a freshman and sophomore, I was continually made aware of the various resources on campus.

What advice do you have for future students who are considering Purdue Engineering?

My time at Purdue has been a great experience. If you are considering pursuing your education here, I would recommend speaking to Purdue alumni and graduating seniors. You will hear about what a Purdue Engineering degree has meant for them and understand the worth of the education that this institution has to offer.
