PNW and Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Ready to return—and ready to roar! Purdue University Northwest has plans in place to stay safe as we welcome faculty, staff and students back to campus for the Fall 2021 semester.
When I came to PNW for the very first time on a campus visit, I already knew this was going to be my home. I will be the best that I can be because I am a product of PNW.
PNW has created networking opportunities and professional relationships that I am grateful for, with mentors that are wonderful role models.
I met a lot of great people who turned out to be some of my best friends, and to actually run a live television show that airs on Lakeshore PBS is really, really valuable.
