Purdue Family Weekend and Exploratory Studies Family Day Reception

Family Weekend, held each fall during a Purdue home football weekend, gives families the opportunity to visit with their sons and/or daughters and to attend special family-centered activities.  This year, Family Weekend will be held September 23rd - 25th, 2016.  This weekend event includes the Flick at Fowler, Boilermaking Crossing, Xtreme bowling and billiards, the Boilermaker BBQ, Family Weekend Brunch, Flicks, Dance Marathon Dash 5K, 211° Session Pep Rally, and, of course, the football battle between Purdue and Nevada.

More information about these activities and parking, as well a reservation link for the BBQ, is available on the official Family Weekend website.

Exploratory Studies will hold its traditional light catered breakfast on Saturday morning, September 24th.  Times and location will be available soon.  All current and former Exploratory Studies and Undergraduate Studies Program students and families are invited to attend.  Those attending who have received Purdue scholarships will be recognized.  An R.S.V.P. for the Exploratory Studies Family Day Reception will be posted in Summer 2016!

If you have questions about the Exploratory Studies Family Day Reception, feel free to e-mail the coordinator, Colleen Brown.  We look forward to seeing you and your family during Family Weekend and the Exploratory Studies Family Day Reception!
