Boiler Gold Rush
The purpose of this site is to give a general overview of the BGR new student orientation program and to introduce you to the student staff structure.
In the fall, just before the start of school, all new students are expected to participate in a Purdue New Student Orientation Experience. While a few students will participate in orientation programs run by Bands, Athletics, and Purdue Musical Organizations, the rest of the students will attend Boiler Gold Rush.
Information about each is below:
There is a $320 fee to attend BGR, which covers most meals and all programmatic costs during the week.
