Here’s What’s Happening Now

Your time at #Purdue lasts a few years — but the impact lasts a lifetime. The journey continues, and you might just change the world. 

The next chapter starts now.
The #PurdueChristmasShow is celebrating its 90th anniversary this weekend with four performances at Elliott Hall of Music. 

Meet some of the @PurduePMO leaders and performers who are proud to carry on one of #Purdue’s beloved holiday traditions. 🎄🎅

As a former @PurduePMO performer, Bill Walker already recognized the #PurdueChristmasShow’s important place as a university holiday tradition. 🎄🎅

But this year the show will take on new meaning for Walker. Two of his children, @Purduettes senior Molly and @PurdueVarsityGleeClub freshman Sam, will perform on the same stage for the first time. 

Meet the Walkers and learn why they believe family connections are common among PMO’s Christmas Show performers.
