Involvement Opportunities

Orientation Programs takes great pride in connecting new students to Purdue University and the Greater Lafayette community. We are especially thankful for those who have taken time and resources to assist in this great effort, and have listed them below.

BGR Opportunities for Campus Partners

Interested in how you can get involved with this year's BGR?

This year we are offering campus partners the chance to host Drop-in hours or an Open House event during BGR 2022. We will publish your final event details in our PurdueGuide App for BGR participants to view. Please note your event will compete with others during the time block so we cannot guarantee participation of all new students as these are open blocks for them to explore and engage across campus. We anticipate up to 8500 new Boilermakers participating in BGR this year.

  • Drop-in - New students will be able to drop into your office during a specified time block to learn more and get familiar with your office on campus. New students will be able to connect with your office staff as they come in and provide them support, answer questions, or share an office giveaway. Your office will be advertised as open to visitors during the whole block in our Purdue Guide App.
  • Open House - New students will be able to participate in an event or activity sponsored by your office during a specified time block. Students will engage in a formal activity to engage with your office more directly. Your office event will be listed in our Purdue Guide App. (examples of open houses are formal tours of your space, a welcome reception, a workshop on your services, staff panel, etc.)

Deadline to submit this form is July 8. Orientation Programs staff will connect with you in July on your submission with any questions or concerns. Please contact if you have any questions.
