Close Connections
“Purdue Fort Wayne really embodies the small-school-with-a-big-school feel. I think the close connections with professors and individual attention are beneficial. Additionally, I have made a lot of good connections and cultivated relationships with my peers and faculty members that I wouldn’t have had the chance to do if it weren’t for being a part of the Honors Program.”

The thought processes
“I chose to major in psychology because I enjoy the thought processes of trying to understand people and how they become who they are.”

Open a Lot of New Doors
“I graduated in 2019 with a degree in chemistry and minors in physics and mathematics. I struggled to find a job that fit my interests and that I was qualified for. I was laid off from my previous job in 2020 due to COVID-19, and knew that if I went back to school, I would open a lot of new doors for job prospects. I also knew that I was almost halfway through receiving a full degree in physics. It was a pretty clear decision for me to turn my poor circumstances into an opportunity.”
