Purdue Polytechnic's South Bend location is reminding prospective students in northern Indiana that it's possible to attend a Big Ten university while staying close to home.
"I came to Purdue South Bend to get my degree so I could get a good job," said Tek Lentine, a mechanical engineering technology graduate. "I [got] the quality and respect of a Purdue education without having to relocate."
"I was the first in my family to graduate college," said Nicole Spencer, an organizational leadership graduate. "Once I got my degree, so many things opened up."
Purdue Polytechnic offers degrees in nine Indiana communities (including South Bend) in addition to the main campus at West Lafayette.
