Changes to BGRi

Boiler Gold Rush International (BGRi) is a supplemental orientation program specifically designed to meet incoming international undergraduate students' unique needs and concerns. Boiler Gold Rush International (BGRi) is traditionally delivered right before the start of BGR (the week before fall classes begin). This year BGRi programming will take place during the week of BGR, from Tuesday, Aug. 17, through Saturday, Aug. 21, 2021. For more information about offical dates and move-in information, please visit our "Preparing for BGR" page. Although the purposes of these programs will remain the same, there will be necessary modifications made to support the  Protect Purdue initiative.

International students are eligible to register for BGRi at no additional cost, after registering for BGR. Domestic students who believe they may benefit from international student specific programming may opt-in to participate in BGRi as well. 

International parents and families are invited to participate in the International Parents Welcome program by the International Students & Scholars office that takes place the same week of BGR. 

All registration information for BGR, BGRi, and the International Parents Welcome will open on March 1, 2021 in your New Student Task List in your myPurdue portal. More information about BGRi will be emailed to students later this summer. All information on BGR and BGRi changes, move-in details, and schedules will be made public on the BGR sections of this website. Please click on 'Boiler Gold Rush' in the 'Our Programs' tab at the top of this page, and explore the information provided.
