Purdue University North Central offers 268 acres of beautiful landscaped grounds providing the perfect place for a picnic.

  • Take a walk on the wooded walking trails.
  • Identify over 100 species of birds–including bluebirds and cardinals.
  • Bring a blanket and a basket, or spread a tablecloth over one of our picnic tables.
At PNC you will find a world-class sculpture exhibit right on the grounds of the campus. The sculpture exhibit, known as Odyssey, displays over 30 sculptures featuring various sculptors from around the country. You will also find wonderful works of art inside the Library-Student-Faculty building. The works of George Sugarman, Jason Poteet and other acclaimed artists are displayed in the library, cafeteria and throughout the building. The building hours are: Monday-Friday 7am-11pm, Saturday 7am-5pm, closed on Sundays and holidays. Restroom facilities are available during these times.


We ask that you help keep our campus beautiful by using available waste receptacles and respect the campus’ alcohol and tobacco free policies.
