Boiler Gold Rush

Boiler Gold Rush (BGR) is our welcome week orientation program for all new undergraduate students. BGR takes place the week before fall classes begin, and Purdue encourages all incoming students to take part, first years and transfers. 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 BGR and BGRi 2022 have not yet been decided. Please continue to monitor your Purdue email and this website for more information. If you are living in University Residences on-campus housing, move-in will begin the week prior to BGR. If you are a Spring-admitted student, please check out our January program, Boiler Cold Rush.
