Find out what’s happening on campus, in the community with the Purdue University Events Calendar
What’s happening on campus this fall? Don’t forget to check the Purdue University Events Calendar, which streamlines the West Lafayette campus’ public events and allows the University community and the general public to customize their personal scheduling and event planning.
The Purdue University Events Calendar also incorporates events beyond the Purdue campus, including public activities from across Greater Lafayette, providing a helpful tool for promoting and socializing those events. Purdue Athletics events have been folded into the calendar, too.
Powered by a software platform from Localist, the Purdue calendar integrates social media, reminders and an easy-to-use interface, while letting event planners promote and share activities and programming. In addition to Purdue faculty and staff, community members can subscribe and receive personal notifications about interested events.
The campus calendar lets users create their own events experience and to build a personal “My Calendar” dashboard for setting preferences on specific types of events and centering on trending and upcoming happenings. They can build an Events Widget that will enable users to promote events by displaying them on any webpage.
The site features a tool to filter events in specific categories such as date, whether it’s an in-person or virtual experience, event type, topic and targeted audience such as general public, students, faculty and staff, alumni and/or student families.
By creating an account, users can upload and submit events to the Purdue campus calendar. A user must be logged in to click on the submit event button. Submissions must be approved by an event administrator.
