Purdue Pride Week

Purdue Pride Week is an event hosted by the Office of Student Activities to kick off the beginning of another academic year. The event is held in September and is a platform to get students involved with the Office of Student Activities and campus life.  Students, faculty and staff create teams for the Purdue Pride Week Games and compete for a chance to win the Chancellor's Cup, a $500 prize and a lunch with Chancellor Dworkin. 

Games this year included a picture scavenger hunt, water balloon launch, movie quote trivia, a two legged sweat pant race and many more. Each day of the week provided an opportunity for students to participate in the games, eat free food and meet new students.

Start thinking about getting your team together for fall 2014! Check back later for details on how to register your team.

Dean's Leadership Group Children's Halloween Party

Every October the Dean's Leadership Group hosts the Dean's Leadership Group Halloween Party. This event provides PNC students, staff and faculty an opportunity to see their children and/or grandchildren dressed up in their Halloween outfit. 

There are activities that are provided by student clubs and organizations. It is a great, safe and fun way to let your children enjoy the frightful night.
