Chicago-N/NW Suburbs


Founded in 2013, the Purdue Club of North/Northwest Suburbs Chicago is one of Purdue Alumni’s newest clubs formed to serve Lake, McHenry, and parts of Northern Cook counties in Illinois. Our focus is to bring Boilermaker alumni and friends together in the North/Northwest Suburbs of Chicago to celebrate Purdue Pride throughout the year.

The Purdue Club of North/Northwest Suburbs Chicago has multiple activities planned throughout the year. The club network is a great way to meet fellow Boilermakers, keep informed of campus activities, and show your Purdue pride. We’d love to see you at our next event! Hail Purdue.


Since early 2015, the Purdue Club of North/Northwest Suburbs Chicago has supported a scholarship through Purdue University.  The scholarship was permanently endowed in 2019.

We set this scholarship fund up to encourage those who give annually to Purdue Athletics and/or your graduating college interests to consider support of our local club too! This funding arrangement assists in administering the scholarship program and furthers the long-range goals of the Club. The endowed scholarship fund is permanently invested, and annual scholarship awards will be dispensed from the fund to support students attending Purdue from the North/Northwest Suburbs Chicago area in perpetuity. Donations to the fund are considered tax-deductible within the guidelines of the IRS, and company gift-matching programs will generally apply as well.
