Where to live in West Lafayette, IN?

My friend is moving with her family to West Lafayette, Indiana to take a position at Purdue, and has asked me to consult the Hive Mind for advice. They're coming from a big city, so small town living will be new to them, and they're looking to buy a house. What neighborhoods should they be looking at?

They have little kids, so good schools are important, and it would be nice to be in an area that's walkable, as much as that's possible. Being near Purdue would be great, if it's not too student-y. Are there parts of town that are kid-friendly and not too isolated? Are there parts of town to avoid, along the lines of "during football games this area gets crazy"?
Any other advice about life in Indiana would be welcome!
