Programs for Admitted Students
Purdue’s for Me
Purdue’s for Me is an on-campus program designed for admitted students. The program allows these students and their families to meet current students, advisors, and faculty; explore extracurricular activities; tour campus and residence halls; eat lunch in a student dining court; and ask any questions they might have.
Destination Purdue is open to all admitted students but is of particular appeal to underrepresented students. The program allows students to meet with faculty and current students, tour campus, and learn more about the University overall.
The Office of Admissions hosts daily, individual visits specifically for admitted students. These are held twice a day, Monday through Friday, and include a presentation and student-guided walking tour.
