“I think one thing that stands out the most to me is how much this university wants me to succeed in my college career. I have had certain advisors reach out to me in order to help me plan out classes, and to make sure I am staying on track with my goals I’ve set for myself.”

Excellent Student-to-Professor Ratio

Close Connections
“Purdue Fort Wayne really embodies the small school with a big-school feel. I think the close connections with professors are beneficial, especially for someone like me who struggles with notorious subjects like organic chemistry.”
