|I don't mean to be rude but some of your comments about Purdue are exaggerations to say the least. Maybe you should have learned a little more about Purdue before you chose to live here. I am a GDI and while I agree that there is a separation between greeks and the rest of us, no one talks about you unless you give them something to talk about. People and friendly around here. People hold the door open, pick up something for you if you drop it, say thank you and excuse me. There are always exceptions but in my experience students are friendly if you are friendly. Purdue is the most beautiful place I have ever seen in the Spring. ALL of the trees bloom full of white and pink flowers!! Parking is an issue and Apartments are ridiculously expensive. There are PLENTY of cute guys here and depending on where you find them, they are not all creepers. Purdue might not have the best Liberal Arts Department but many of their programs are world class. I got into Notre Dame but chose to attend Purdue instead and I wouldn't dream of changing my decision! My heart belongs to Purdue!! Boiler UP!!!|
|So basically you're upset because it's not California - which you knew before attending.|
Another problem is probably your major. Psychology. At a state school, everyone gets into a psychology program. Try Chemistry (and actually staying into the upper grad years) - you will be kicked out if you don't develop competency in the subject. Or try engineering with psych as a minor. Most of all, you gave it one year. Your freshman year. No grad from any college takes freshman complaints like that seriously. This is because (high school seniors pay attention here) your freshman year will be difficult, especially if you went to a good university. True at Purdue; at UCLA; at Texas; and most other good (and large) schools. You haven't even been there long enough to learn the many opportunities to have a great time and to learn.
The other problem could be that you have gone to college expecting that the fun people will just come and find you. Understand that it takes work on your part. And generally the crowd that finds you too easily is trouble.
Just an observation from someone who has gone to several (big) universities (and graduated from each)
