Established as a "satellite campus" of the main campus in West Lafayette, Indiana, Purdue University Calumet was founded as full time university in the northwestern corner of Indiana. Purdue Calumet prides itself on maintaining good standards while at the same preparing its students for the economy and world beyond the borders of Democratic dominated Lake County. Having accomplished a great victory in borrowing the Purdue name, Purdue Calumet then decided to implement a typical Lake County tradition: Overcharge the students, and make introductory course work seemingly impossible in the non-liberal arts departments so as to continue the gouging. Purdue Calumet prefers to charge its students insane tuition and other "non-deferential" charges so as to turn over large profits yearly. Of course with all the Democratic "Chicago Machine" government and infleunce in the way, it's telltale that the IRS would never really come after Purdue Calumet, after all, as long as prominent local goverment leaders are driving to work in a brand new Mercedes Benz, the IRS and the rest of the outside world won't know any better. Although Purdue Calumet is a state funded school, and by law NOT supposed to adapt to any particular poltical stance or party, Purdue Calumet just loves to make shoe polish out of shit. Instead of looking at an issue in a different light, Purdue Calumet's teachers and many students are quick to hop on the "anti-everything" bandwagon, even though at time, facts may not be clear and concise. This school makes it a seemingly serious offense to be conservative and actually believe in something if it's not on Ted Kennedy's or Jesse Jackson's camera chasing agenda. Take the War in Iraq as example. Rather than tell unwashed, uninformed, and clearly biased protestors to just stay at home or take their protesting elsewhere, the school invites them in and gives them podium time allowing them to piss and moan about how evil the US government is. Purdue Calumet is known for their gift at alienating certain groups of people. The school is quick to give concessions based on race to blacks, but not the same treatment to white or hispanic students, and the school harbors deep resentment towards ex-military and War Veterans in general, often times treating them with a paternalistic, second hand attitude.
Purdue Calumet: Enroll today to get ripped off.

Yeah, they make the basic science and math courses harder than need be, so Liberal Arts majors will fail and have to pay more money. It's a typical Lake County scam.
