What Students Say About Student Life

My favorite part of being involved with the Student Advisory Board is being able to connect with other students at Purdue Global who have the same desire to be a part of something bigger and want to make a difference. I also enjoy having the opportunity to gain leadership experience as a student, which is something that I will be able to take with me when I graduate.


Jennifer Degraw

Former President of the Student Advisory Board and BS in Health Information Management Student*

Being enrolled in an online institution, we have been granted a fantastic opportunity to engage with many individuals who each bring their own experiences, knowledge, and perspectives to the table. Student Life provides students with endless opportunities for this engagement surrounding multiple topics of interest, allowing us to learn from one another and grow together. I am proud to be a Purdue Global student!
