Boiler Gold Rush 2022

A Uniquely Purdue Welcome: Boiler Gold Rush 2022

On Aug. 16, Purdue welcomed the Class of ’26 for welcome week — or, as we call it, Boiler Gold Rush! Incoming freshmen spent the week exploring campus, making friends and building memories as they prepare to start the school year.

It’s a huge, community effort to put on BGR every year, with hundreds of student volunteers leading small groups of freshmen, preparing them for life here in West Lafayette.  We’re so excited for the 2022-23 school year and all the energy and creativity this incoming freshman class will bring to campus!
