    Weather is very bipolar. Can be raining one day, to sunny, to snowing all in the same week. Other than that, the campus is beautiful. Plenty to do if you keep your ears and eyes open. There is always stuff going on around campus. The school is big on Greek life also so join a Fraternity or Sorority if that is your thing. Also there are plenty of professional organizations to choose from also.

    The campus is beautiful and as cheesy as it might sound, when the leaves begin to chance colors, it lights up the campus. The professors are understanding and willing to help when you need it. The atmosphere is very calm and is a perfect learning environment. The first snow of the season made the campus look so beautiful and makes it look like wonderland.

    Purdue is a great school with a great environment, academically and socially. I am very far from home but I haven't really felt very home sick because the people here are mostly very nice and cool. Also, there are always activities to do around campus and the sports atmosphere makes the weekends even more fun.
