For Families

If you're a former Purdue student who is now a parent of a current Purdue student, we have some fun events for you!

Legacy Picnic
Cordova Recreational Sports Center
August 15–16
11 a.m.–2 p.m.

If you have a child who will begin his or her first year at Purdue in the fall, be sure to attend our event to honor families of Boilermakers, the annual Purdue Alumni Legacy Picnic in the Feature Gym of the France A. Cordova Recreational Sports Center. The picnic will be held on Monday and Tuesday, August 15–16, from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. A light lunch will be provided by Subway. Purdue Alumni gear will be available and students and families can enter different contests for chances to win prizes. If your child indicated he or she is a legacy student on the admission application, an invitation will be e-mailed to the student and parent.
