Getting involved at Purdue is both easy and difficult. It’s easy because there are 1000+ clubs and organizations, not to mention outlets for those interested in music, religious worship and service, community service, Greek life, and more. It’s difficult because the sheer amount of choice can be overwhelming! We encourage you to attend a few call-outs (open meetings for new members), even if it’s your first semester. It’s a great way to meet a variety of people, build new skills, and explore budding interests.
Call-outs typically happen the first few weeks of each semester, but Fall semester is definitely the key time! Here are some great resources to investigate your options:
BoilerLink: Your home for Purdue clubs and organizations. Shortcuts to different categories of organizations, like religious, cultural, club sports, and hobbies can be found on the B-Involved page.
Global experiences: The International Center (language courses & events), Study Abroad, MIX (U.S. students helping international students feel at home), Boiler Out (international and U.S. students providing community service), Go! Purdue trips, and more.
Greek and Co-op Life: Great ways to meet people and make a difference in your school and community.
Community Standards Board: Students who love law and want to participate in helping students find their best path might like this opportunity to serve!

Heart & Soul, Purdue Bells, and All Campus and Community Chorale (AC3): Love music, but don’t want the full-on Glee Club or Purduettes commitment? Consider one of these groups!
ROTC: For those looking to serve their country through the armed forces!
Purdue Convocations: Are you interested in bringing hot new shows to Purdue? Or maybe you just want to usher for a few hours and get to see a show for free in the process?
