Purdue's Old Golden Ticket Vaccination Drawing: Winners' Reactions
In this special edition of This Is Purdue, we’re featuring our journey to find and award the 10 Boilermakers who entered the Old Golden Ticket Vaccination Drawing.
Students who submitted valid proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by July 15 were randomly selected to win the ‘Golden Ticket’ - $9,992 - the equivalent of a year’s undergraduate tuition cost for an in-state Boilermaker since 2013.
Listen in as the Purdue University Marketing and Communications team highlights the behind-the-scenes details of pulling off these ultimate surprises from finding students on campus to crossing state lines to getting the parents in on the celebration. You don’t want to miss this episode!
