Parent and Family Socials

Parent & Family Socials are small, informal gatherings held at neighborhood coffee shops or homes and hosted or organized by a current Purdue parent or family member. Parents and families of Purdue students gather within their community to celebrate being part of the Boilermaker family, foster connections with one another, and receive helpful information about what is happening on campus. Be on the lookout for an invitation as socials are being held year round!

Believe there was a social in your area and you did not receive an invitation? Please be sure to add to your contacts in order to make sure the email is not sent to spam. Also, have your student double check the email address(es) listed for the parent(s) in their MyPurdue account. You can also call Parent & Family Connections at 765-496-0524 or email us at in order to RSVP.
