How good is Purdue university West Lafayette campus for doing BS in computer science?

I am in 'Computer Information Technology' at Purdue which is somewhat similar to Computer Science. 'Computer Science', as I have heard, is a very difficult major at Purdue. There are many students, including some of my friends, who have switched from Computer Science to Computer Information Technology because they weren't able to handle it. But if you think that you can work hard and you can pull off, then there's a very good scope in Computer Science and especially from Purdue. They have a very good Computer Science program with almost full placements. I would say go for it and pursue Computer Science; you can always switch to Computer Information Technology or some other major if you find it very difficult in later stages.

Amelia Earhart
Purdue University

Did Amelia Earhart attend Purdue University?

No, she never attended Purdue University. She did attend a junior college in Rydal, PA, and enrolled at Columbia University, but never received a degree from either institution. She left Columbia to move to California, where she would begin flying lessons in 1920.

There's no indication Amelia Earhart attended a junior college in Pennsylvania, though besides studying at Columbia she took a summer course in auto mechanics at Smith and in mathematics at Harvard. The above information about Columbia is correct. The association with Purdue was as a faculty member and career advisor for women. She was on leave from Purdue when she disappeared--in the plane supplied her by Purdue.
