The Pride at Play
SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
From Spanish Club to our car-building Society of Automotive Engineers groups to student government, there are organizations for every passion and interest at PNW. Join a professional society, volunteer in the community or even learn how to play a new sport.
Inclusive and Welcoming PNW
At PNW, you will find space to be your truest self. We offer a culture of inclusivity, equitable treatment and welcoming opportunities for all.
Get involved because it is really worth it. Start by going to a couple of meetings — the more people you meet, the more networking you do, the farther you can go.
My favorite aspect of Purdue Northwest is the community. You make friends at PNW so easily. You see them all the time. It’s a great feeling.
The university provides a lot of opportunities for students in a very supportive environment. Whatever your interests, you can find a place where you feel you belong.
Take advantage of all the opportunities on campus. Get to know your professors and classmates. Put yourself out there, I promise it will pay off!
Picture Yourself at Purdue Northwest
