BGR Team Leaders

The Team Leader position is an entry-level, volunteer leadership role that supports the mission and vision of Boiler Gold Rush (BGR) and Boiler Gold Rush International (BGRi), Orientation Programs, the Student Success Programs department, and Purdue University.

This was one of the most amazing experiences I have had, and could not have asked for better people to share it with. There is nothing like it anywhere else in the world, I feel, and I love the atmosphere and openness and positivity that comes with Boiler Gold Rush and which, then, resonates with the new students coming in.
