All Aboard for Orientation

Congratulations, new Boilermaker! Now that you've been accepted to Purdue University, you have the opportunity to participate in Purdue Orientation Programs.

BGR and BGRi Will Take Place August 18-22

Purdue plans to deliver Boiler Gold Rush (BGR) this Fall as it has for over 25 years. Boiler Gold Rush International (BGRi) content will also be delivered during the week of BGR. Although the purposes of these programs will remain the same, there will be necessary modifications made to support Protect Purdue. This year, BGR and BGRi will be happening concurrently, and will run from August 18-22, 2020. Students will have the opportunity to move in to their residence hall or off-campus housing from August 14-18, prior to BGR/BGRi beginning.
