Who can be a member of Varsity P?
Varsity P is open to all John Purdue Club members who were varsity student-athletes, athletic trainers, managers, coaches, practice players, graduate assistants, or spirit squad members during their time at Purdue. If you are an active JPC member and fall into one of those categories, you are automatically a member of Varsity P.
I did not letter or graduate from Purdue. Can I still be a member?
Varsity P is not a letterwinners organization; all members are welcome even if they did not letter, did not graduate, or only played their sport for a season.
Is this separate from the John Purdue Club?
Active JPC members who were varsity student-athletes, athletic trainers, managers, coaches, practice players, graduate assistants, or spirit squad members during their time at Purdue are considered Varsity P members. Varsity P falls under the larger John Purdue Club umbrella.
What are the benefits of membership?

How is my gift used? Can I make sure that it supports my sport?
The JPC is responsible for raising 100% of the funds necessary to cover the tuition, room and board, books, and academic support costs of Purdue’s 500+ student-athletes. Your gift supports scholarships, academic support, and improvements to our athletics facilities. Gifts are not used for administrative costs. You may choose to give to your sport specifically, and it will count towards annual JPC membership.
Members wishing to leave a permanent mark on Purdue Athletics may fully endow an athletic scholarship. Donors may choose to endow a general athletic scholarship or one for a particular major, sport, or attribute.
