Whether you are meeting new friends or reconnecting with old ones, you need a place to hang out. There are plenty of places to meet up right here on Purdue’s campus. Here’s a list of our favorite spots!
1. Pete’s Za
What’s more shareable than pizza? Nothing! At Pete’s Za you can order an entire pizza for just one meal swipe. If you’re looking for a greener option, you can also order a large salad for one meal swipe. Pete’s Za is also centrally located in Meredith Hall, so you can invite your friends from all over campus!
If you aren’t in the mood for pizza, head on over to 1bowl which is also located in Meredith Hall. Check the Purdue Menus App for their daily menu, grab your bowl, and find a seat with friends! If the bowl option isn’t your style, Sushi Boss is also serving meals in 1bowl. With over 14 different sushi rolls, you won’t leave hungry! The Gathering Place is also right next door to 1bowl and has plenty of extra seating.
