Class of 1950 Lecture Hall (CL50)

Room 224


Our goal is to create the best living-learning environment for student success by being student-centered and learning-focused.

We will share important information about:

Health & Wellness

Gain important information regarding student health insurance policies, procedures, and strategies. You will also learn about Purdue’s fitness & wellness facilities, outdoor adventure, and sports clubs. Learn tips for talking with your student about healthy decision-making and strategies for reducing risks to help him or her live well.

Community Standards & Safety

Campus safety is a priority at Purdue. Hear Environmental Health and Safety and Dean of Students staff discuss common risks that first year students encounter and practical strategies to reduce those risks. Information will be shared that will assist students living both on and off campus during their first year at Purdue.

Campus Living

Your student can engage in leadership, service, campus activities, and social justice in the Residence Halls or learn about Greek Life and Cooperative Housing on campus. With over 900 student organizations, there are many opportunities for students to meet and refine their leadership skills and engage in their new community.

See you there and Boiler Up!
