Give Back to PNW
Excitement surrounds Purdue University Northwest (PNW) as we end this calendar year. Our PNW students are back to in-person learning and that has created a wonderful energy full of exhilaration and enthusiasm. Academically, our programs are stronger than ever and our faculty members continue to engage our community and their research.
PNW is celebrating many successes:
- This year marks the 75th anniversary of the legacy campuses and the 5th anniversary of becoming Purdue Northwest. We will host the 5.75 Roaring Ahead Gala in June 2022 to support student scholarships.
- Our fall freshman class is comprised of 98% full-time students and over 24% Latino students. The Honors College welcomed its largest and most diverse freshman class ever.
- We will make substantial investments in growing academic programs such as cybersecurity, social work, digital marketing and media, computer science, nursing and health studies.
- U.S. News & World Report recognized PNW among the top public Midwest regional universities highlighting our Engineering, Nursing, and Business programs.
- The first PNW athlete in school history was selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.
These highlights mean we are doing many things right that support our students’ success. You are an important part of this success. Your support makes it possible for determined students to pursue their dreams and for passionate educators to ignite an excitement for learning.
During this holiday season, please consider helping PNW students by giving to the area of your choosing. Simply fill out the enclosed donation envelope or give online at pnw.edu/giveback.
I hope you take pride in knowing that you are helping today’s students, faculty and staff push the boundaries of innovation.
Thank you for your consideration and happy holidays to you and your family.
