“From my first visit, Purdue was the right fit! There’s so much to do and so many ways to get involved. I’ve made the most of my experience by getting involved in clubs and gaining teaching experience near campus, in Chicago, and in Tanzania, Africa. Looking back, I know Purdue was the perfect choice.”
