RESOURCES FOR YOU

Stay Connected

Four times a year, you can receive our award-winning Purdue Alumnus digital magazine in your inbox—for free! Share your email to get on the list. (The magazine used to only be available to Purdue Alumni Association members, but that changed when the Purdue for Life Foundation was founded.)

And if your inbox can handle just a little more, we invite you to subscribe to Boiler UPdate, which is sent once a month, on the first of the month. Instead of telling you what you can expect, let us show you—check out our inaugural issue from August 1, 2022!

Get Involved

In addition to lifelong learning experiences and opportunities to volunteer, we offer more than 175 events for Boilermakers to enjoy each year. In fact, there is a Purdue for Life event taking place somewhere in the world nearly every day.

A few we hope you’ll check out include the Purdue Women’s Conference (June 17–18), Grandparents University (July), and Homecoming (September 28).

Give Back

What a privilege it is to be a Boilermaker, today and every day. Purdue people persistently pursue giant leaps, and the generosity of our Boilermaker family helps support our faculty, staff, and students every small step of the way.

Thank you for all you do to advance Purdue. If you want to do even more, there are many ways to give back. Two of our favorite ways include participating in Purdue Day of Giving and showing your pride with a Purdue license plate. Fun fact: Since launching in 1991, the license plate program has raised more than $13.6 million for the Purdue Scholarship Fund.

We get it, you get it, everybody gets it. A lot of email, that is. Four times a year, you can receive our award-winning Purdue Alumnus digital magazine in your inbox—for free!
