Purdue to Host Weeks of Welcome 

Purdue to Host Weeks of Welcome 

Purdue University will celebrate the beginning of the fall semester by highlighting student events and programming through October 8.   

Known as “Purdue Weeks of Welcome,” the events will introduce students to the vibrant extracurricular experiences generations of Boilermakers have come to enjoy.  

This collaborative effort includes departments and areas from the division of Student Life, Diversity and Inclusion, and Teaching and Learning, as well as the expansive group of more than 900 recognized student organizations. 

Weeks of Welcome kicks off with Purdue Student Activities & Organizations’ B-Involved Fair, scheduled for Aug. 19, 12-3 p.m., on the Gold Intramural Fields next to the France A. Córdova Recreational Sports Center (CoRec).  The fair is the premiere opportunity for students to learn about and connect with more than 900 student organizations on campus. Visit the Weeks of Welcome webpage, Boilerlink or download the Corq app to view other upcoming events.   

Campus units and recognized student organizations promoting events on social media during Weeks of Welcome are encouraged to use the hashtag #PurdueWOW to make events easily searchable for students. A web page has been created that will collect all posts using #PurdueWOW into a centralized space that can also be shared with students in campus-wide communication efforts.
