Date: Jul 30 2012 Major: Telecommunications (This Major's Salary over time) Purdue's a good school. College is really what you make it. I read some of these other reviews and laugh. Your goal is to get the degree, especially in today's economy. At first, I really hated Purdue for the lack of social scene when your around 18 or 19. That gets better once you turn 21 or find a group of friends to party with. It takes a little while to get adjusted to getting a good group of friends,but it's worth it. I joined a fraternity, christian org, and music programs. They all had activities, not every weekend. But you'll make some good memories. The liberal arts department was very small,but good. They didn't sugarcoat anything,plus they weren't going to guarantee that you'll make a six figure salary once you graduate. But when competing for internships/coops in a large metro area, Purdue stood out against lower tier schools. It really did.Social life gets better once you turn 21+,everyone goes out to the cactus or chauncey during the weekend. It's pretty fun. There's also a nice co-rec and plenty of free activities on campus that one can enjoy oneself(if that makes any sense).Football and Basketball games a blast, you should defiantely try to at least enjoy of few of them. Grand Prix week is always fun around campus(I personally never considered it a big party weekend, i always felt the first weekends of the semester were). Also take advantage of semester away programs, they are worth it plus you'll make alot of friends.
