  • My kitten had a very rare health condition and wouldn't be alive if it were not for the students, vets and vet techs at the small animal hospital on campus. They were all very compassionate and knowledgeable in the type of surgery and after care my kitten would need for his rare condition. He received above excellent attention and TLC for all his needs during and after surgery and came out of there a kitten with a new lease on life! These people are professional,caring, and very well trained in their field.I would highly recommend them to anyone who appreciates excellence in the care of their pets!
  • Great University and great place...! Both my daughters attended Purdue University and achieved degrees and I could not have been happier with everything there..! Rated this year the 5th best public university in America, so they must be doing something right..! Great midwestern values..!... Since Mitch Daniels (ex governor of Indiana) took over he froze the tuition and hasn't raised it in nearly 6 years...! That is unheard of...! The dining courts are unbelievable, any thing you could want is there, Chinese, Italian, American, just terrific... And as info, more astronauts went to Purdue than any other university and Amelia Earhart even taught there...! The great Neil Armstrong attended Purdue and achieved an aeronautical engineering degree, they have a statue in his honor on campus... This is a terrific learning institution and I highly recommend Purdue but buckle down, because it's not easy...! "Boiler Up"..!
  • First of all prestigious place of higher education exact quote from a Karen an admission counselor is nice way of saying expensive. Don't have specific experience in the field why would I want a degree if I have specific experience in the field. That could have been handled better there are no such thing as prestigious places of higher education it's money for colleges realize that and be nicer
  • Tough classes. Mean teachers. produce great scholars
  • Purdue University is one of the best colleges in the country. My experience here has been pretty amazing. The classes here are really hard but its definitely worth it. The professors are all extremely knowledgeable and all the ones I've had so far have been able to teach very well.
