Boiler Cold Rush

Boiler Cold Rush is our welcome weekend orientation program for new undergraduate students admitted to Purdue for the Spring semester. Boiler Cold Rush takes place the weekend before Spring classes begin, and Purdue encourages all incoming students to take part as well as any student new to the residential experience in the spring. You’ll learn about campus traditions, Purdue culture and University resources. It’s also a great chance to make lasting friendships and learn how to be a successful Boilermaker. Official dates for Boiler Cold Rush 2022 will be released soon. Please continue to monitor your Purdue email and this website for upcoming dates and other information.
