Purdue Family Day

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 will be held on Saturday, September 19, 2015.  This all-day event includes the Boiler Bridge Walk, a Pep Rally Session, Xtreme bowling and billiards, the Boilermaker BBQ, a Purdue-sponsored tailgate, Flicks at Fowler, and the football battle between Purdue and Virginia Tech.

More information about these activities, as well as R.S.V.P. links (for the BBQ) and parking information will be available on the official Family Day website (2015 information will be posted soon). 

Exploratory Studies will hold its traditional light catered breakfast on Saturday morning from 9:30 - 11:00 a.m.  The location for this event is still to be determined.  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.  A link to R.S.V.P. for the Family Day Reception will be available in August 2015. 

If you have questions about the Family Day Reception, feel free to e-mail Colleen Brown, EXPL Family Day coordinator.  If you have general questions about Family Day, click on the Family Day FAQ page (2015 information will be posted soon) for answers and contact information.  We look forward to seeing you and your family during Family Day!
