The purpose of the club is to promote Purdue University and the Purdue Alumni Association through involvement and support of local community activities; and to provide opportunities for networking among alumni, friends and students.

The club area consists of the Indiana Counties of Clark, Floyd, Scott, Jefferson, Washington and Harrison and the Kentucky Counties of Jefferson, Oldham, Spencer, Trimble, Shelby, Bullitt, and Henry. Currently, more than 6,400 Boilermaker households are in the the Falls Cities area making club events a great way to network, stay current on campus activities, and show your Purdue pride.

During the year we organize many philanthropic events and social gatherings, including game watch parties, Churchill Downs track party, Scholarship Golf Outing, Urban Bourbon Trail Tour, community service activities, and many more!
