Whether through friendships, professors, field experience or campus organizations, PNW has provided me the opportunity to make connections, enabling me to achieve my goals while providing opportunities I would not have had otherwise.
As an individual who is hoping to make a difference in this world, I know my dream is becoming a reality because I had the best teaching and training.
Everyone was very kind. The students in my major were all very supportive of each other. At times we would struggle but we worked together as a group to figure it out.
PNW has created networking opportunities and professional relationships that I am grateful for, with mentors that are wonderful role models.
Purdue Northwest has given me the opportunity to grow into the teacher my future students need and deserve. I'm grateful to have had the amazing support and encouragement of my professors, advisor and peers!
