The Office of Globalization acknowledges the traditional homelands of the Indigenous People which Purdue University is built upon. We honor and appreciate the Bodéwadmik (Potawatomi), Lenape (Delaware), Myaamia (Miami), and Shawnee People who are the original Indigenous caretakers.

Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Lucerne, Switzerland

"Overall, my time in Luzern taught me a lot more than electronics. It taught me how to assimilate into another culture and another place, fine tuned my money and time management skills (both things are VERY necessary to living in Switzerland), and gave me a deeper appreciation and understanding of people in general. This is an experience I would highly recommend to others and one that I would do again in a heartbeat."
