Family Day at Purdue
Family Day, held each fall on the Saturday of a Purdue home football weekend, gives families the opportunity to visit with their sons and/or daughters and attend special family-centered activities. This year, Family Day is being held in conjunction with Homecoming, expanding the Family Day activities over two days:
- Friday, Sept. 27: Boiler Bridge Walk and Homecoming Parade
- Saturday, Sept. 28: Celebration on the Mall, Xtreme bowling and billiards, the Boilermaker BBQ, a Purdue-sponsored tailgate, Flicks at Fowler, and, the football battle between Purdue and Northern Illinois
More information about these activities, as well as R.S.V.P. links (for the BBQ) and parking information are available on the official Family Day website.
While you are in town, we hope that you will join the Exploratory Studies advisors for an catered light breakfast on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. in Stewart Center, room 306. All current Exploratory Studies and Undergraduate Studies Program students and families are invited. This is an informal event, so your family are free to visit us anytime between 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. as you are able. One specific event, though: At 10:00 a.m., we will formally recognize our current scholarship recipients!
To help us plan refreshments and to insure that all scholarship recipients are properly recognized, we ask that you R.S.V.P. using this form: https://purdue.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_6nIa17G1BiAc1YV. Only one person from each family needs to R.S.V.P. Please R.S.V.P. by noon on Friday, September 27th.
