If you are interesting in learning more about Purdue University, the best place to start is with a visit to our breath-taking campus. I visited a lot of schools when trying to decide where I wanted to go, and it was only after my trip to Purdue that I knew it was where I belonged. During your visit be sure to check out all of the University Residence living options to find where you would feel most comfortable. Do not be afraid to ask any current Purdue students you might run into about their experience too! Everyone at Purdue is very friendly and will share their Purdue pride with you. You will also want to take a walk through the academic campus to get a feel for a day in the life of a Boilermaker. Be sure to go by both the Engineering and Beering Fountains where you might see Purdue students doing a fountain run if the weather is nice (or even if it is not). Another Purdue landmark to check out is the clapping circles located near the Purdue Memorial Union. During your visit you might even see the official Purdue mascot, the Boilermaker Special, riding through the streets of campus blaring its horn. If this all sounds great to you and you are ready to attend in the fall, then my biggest piece of advice is to get involved! Be sure to attend Boiler Gold Rush (BGR) - one of the largest new student orientations in the country - before classes start, participate in rush for Greek life at Purdue, check out the activities fairs to find student organizations you are interested in, attend as many sporting events as possible (but get your VIP pass early), and just find you niche! Finally, after a long day at Purdue to only place to go is The Den located in Chauncey Hill to get an infamous den pop. Boiler up!» Read More
As with any college, keep organized and be sure to focus on school work, but also be sure to get involved with a good group of friends.

It isn't worth it and you will be glad you didn't» Read More
I would advise learning time management. There are a lot of temptations on campus- especially the parties. If you work hard and study, you will be successful; however, if you are more interested in the social aspect, you will do poorly. There is time for both. You just have to learn how to balance your school work and your social life.» Read More
