I wanted smaller class sizes, professors who knew me and cared about my education, a community atmosphere on campus and a healthy learning environment. Purdue Northwest made that happen for me.

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.
