There are full-day visit events during the fall and spring academic terms as well as shorter Daily Visits throughout the calendar year. Students who are on our mailing list will receive invitations to on-campus visit programs. When we are accepting reservations for the programs listed below, links on this page will take you to online registration information.
Introducing Purdue is a full-day visit program in the spring semester that is open to all high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors. It offers the perfect opportunity to learn more about Purdue. Students who attend will have the chance to talk with academic advisors, tour the campus, visit the residence halls, and hear what current Purdue students are saying about life on campus. This program is offered on multiple days in March and April.
Daily visits are available year-round four times each day, Monday through Friday, and include a presentation and student-guided walking tour. With some exceptions, daily visits last about 2.5 hours. During the school year, an abbreviated Daily Visit is available most Saturdays.
Saturday with the Boilermakers
The 2014 Saturday with the Boilermakers event is tentatively set for September 20. We will begin accepting registrations in August.
This Saturday on-campus program for high school students each September features an information fair, admissions sessions, and tours of the campus and residence halls. Participating students receive a complimentary ticket to that day's Purdue football game and family members may purchase additional game tickets.
Fall Preview Days
Fall Preview Days are full-day visit programs in the fall semester during which high school students can attend an information fair, meet with representatives from Purdue's colleges and schools, tour the campus and residence halls and enjoy a complimentary lunch in a student dining court. Fall Preview Days are offered on multiple days during the fall semester.
