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 18th - 20th, 2015.  This weekend event includes the Boiler Bridge Walk, Family University, Xtreme bowling and billiards, the Boilermaker BBQ, Sunday Brunch, Flicks at Fowler, 211 Session Pep Rally, and, of course, the football battle between Purdue and Virginia Tech.

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 19th, from 9:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. in the Stewart Center (STEW), rooms 302 - 306.  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 at 10:15 a.m.  Please R.S.V.P. for the Exploratory Studies Family Day Reception at http://tinyurl.com/EXPLFamilyDay15 by August 29th.
