Advice For Students

I would encourage you to surround yourself with supportive and positive people who inspire and uplift you. A great way to find those people is through extracurriculars! I suggest looking into clubs that seem interesting or that you are passionate about. Going to a club callout can really change the course of your time here at Purdue for the better. It’s a great way to create a community when you are away from home.
