Our rigorous programs bring real-world experience to the classroom, building the knowledge you need to succeed.
I never imagined in college I would have classes of 20 students or less. It allowed me to build connections with faculty and staff. It all just made sense and truly did feel like home.
PNW provided me with a strong science foundation. I was able to build a relationship with many of the faculty and staff. They taught me leadership and allowed me to grow as an individual.
My experience as a biology student at Purdue Northwest was highlighted by ample opportunities to learn and grow both inside and outside of the classroom. Moving forward as a graduate student and researcher, I’ll always be proud to say that I went to Purdue University Northwest!
My experiences at PNW have given me the confidence and skill set I needed to continue the pursuit of success outside of the classroom. If I could give one piece of advice to any student at PNW, it would be to not be afraid to ask any and all questions. It’s the best way to find the correct answers.
College isn’t just about attending classes. It’s also about getting involved, gaining relevant experience and making connections. PNW offered that well-rounded experience.
