PNC Places First Among “Best Colleges For Students With Children”

Purdue University North Central earned first-place recognition on a national list of “Best Colleges For Students With Children” compiled by the web resource BestColleges.com.

In ranking Purdue North Central first on its national list of “Best Colleges For Students With Children,” BestColleges.com made special mention of the PNC affordable tuition rate, the on-campus Panther Cubs Child Care service open to all enrolled students and faculty members, the Saturday MBA program offered at PNC – Porter County in Valparaiso and the University Park Apartments located directly across from the PNC campus on U.S. 421.

The site notes “more than 1,500 colleges, universities, and vocational schools offer child care for not only students, but also faculty members with children. Some schools have gone to even greater lengths than the rest to further support their student parent population.”

“To be recognized as first in the nation on the “Best Colleges For Students With Children” list is a tremendous accomplishment that highlights the type of campus culture that we’ve built at Purdue North Central,” said PNC Chancellor Dr.  James B. Dworkin. “We work very hard to make PNC and a Purdue University degree accessible for all students. Our tuition rates, financial aid, class schedule, campus child care, tutoring services, even our PNC – Porter County location, are all factors that help our students succeed.

Second on the list is the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor. Other Indiana universities making the list are Indiana University-Southeast – New Albany listed at 14 and Ball State University at 28.
