I’ve been able to build those connections with professors and talk with them one-on-one about class and my career. I loved having the opportunity to go to office hours for help with assignments and having them recognize me.

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.

At Purdue Northwest, the class sizes are small enough that I was able to get to know my professors. They are willing to invest in you, in your success—you’re not just a number to them.
