Mission statement of BGR.
Boiler Gold Rush, originally called Corn Camp, was founded in 1993. It has since grown to be one of the largest student-run orientation programs in the United States.
Throughout the week of BGR new students participate in activities ranging from social events to learning about Purdue's campus and traditions. Click the above link to view a list of events that took place during past BGR programs.
