Celebrating Graduation - International Students & Parents


Nearly 1,400 international students were welcomed to the ranks of 450,000+ worldwide Purdue alumni during Purdue’s 2014 spring commencement ceremonies.  This number comprised of over 700 graduate degrees; 680 undergraduate, and 10 professional degrees.  The Purdue Alumni Association hosted its first reception for international parents who were visiting Purdue for their son’s/daughter’s graduation ceremony.   

Alumni who live overseas keep their connection to Purdue very strong by celebrating  Purdue at many alumni and recruiting events around the world and by being involved in their networks.  You can find out more information about a network in your area by going to the International Networks website or by contacting Mary Dennis at mfdennis@purdue.edu.

To make sure you are invited to alumni events in your area, please check your contact information is correct by going to the Update Your Information page.  We also encourage you to learn of the benefits of being a member of the Purdue Alumni Association.
