Boiler Gold Rush in Indianapolis

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.

This year, Boiler Gold Rush Indianapolis will take place from Aug. 13-17, 2024. Please be patient as we finalize details about scheduling, move-in, and other critical details. More information will be shared on this website and to your Purdue email as the summer progresses.
