Purdue University has a rich history of bringing concerts, lectures and performances to campus. One thing has remained constant through the years: the desire to expand the Purdue experience beyond the classroom. Join us in the virtual world as we connect you with cultural experiences, even as we practice social distancing.

We know social distancing can be difficult. To help make it easier, we’ve created a running list of arts and culture you can take part in from home. We’ll be updating this list regularly, so be sure to check back in and see what’s new. Enjoy!
