The Graduate School Advance to a Higher Degree

Welcome to Grad Gold Rush - 2023

The Purdue Graduate School is excited to welcome all new graduate students to our university community. Our Graduate Gold Rush will take place on August 18, 2023, and is designed to help you start your journey as a successful graduate student at Purdue.

At Gold Rush, you will have the opportunity to meet fellow graduate students, connect with faculty and staff, and learn about important resources and services available to you. We will cover a variety of topics, including academic expectations, campus culture, graduate student life, and more.

Our goal is to provide you with the tools and support you need to thrive in your academic and personal pursuits. We know that starting graduate school can be both exciting and overwhelming, and we are here to help you navigate the transition.

We look forward to seeing you at Graduate Gold Rush on August 18, 2023. Registration is open now, so check your email for the invitation. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
