Accepted to transfer, What is purdue like? Atmosphere, social, environment?
I just got accepted to purdue's aerospace engineering program. Entering as a sophmore if i make the commitment to go. I am wondering what Purdue is like as a whole.
My current college is in florida (UCF), i personally do not like it because the students have a lack of interest in school, or a lack of intelligence. There is a big(and bad) greek scene. Many of the frat guys are jerks, sorority girls are the typical florida dumb blonde. Overall, my school is a huge party school. Unfortunately for me, I do not do that. I dont drink, i prefer to hang out with friends. We are typical internets users lol. Trolling forums etc. I consider myself a gamer, but school comes first for me.
I am wondering what it is like at purdue. I am interested in a school that has a nice student body, generally smarter and has interest in school. I want to be in a very academic atmosphere where i feel like i will fit in. But i also want to be able to make friends like me where we like to hang out, play games, etc... I guess im a nerd. It has been tough to make the lasting friendships i made during my years in highschool. I went to 3 different states in 2 years and made awsome friends, but i havent been able to at my current college which is strange.
Do you think purdue is a school i could enjoy? I dont mind so much that its in the middle of nowhere, its not like I do anything when there is a lot to do. Im in orlando and i could care less lol.
sorry for the wall of text, i dont really know anyone at purdue, so i was wondering if anyone could give me a good picture of the school.
