“Giant Leaps @ Home,” Purdue University’s 2020 Homecoming celebration will take place virtually this year, from Monday, November 9, through Saturday, November 14.
Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN 47907
Description: In keeping with the Protect Purdue Plan, the university’s comprehensive strategy to keep campus safe by limiting the spread of COVID-19, this year’s Homecoming will forgo in-person gatherings and, instead, offer the Purdue family around the globe an array of virtual programming that celebrates the university’s storied history and the traditions, memories, and spirit that bind us together.
Planning for Purdue’s first ever Virtual Homecoming is still underway. Join us live daily from 12-1pm EST to hear the latest from university leadership and the colleges as well as get information on campus-wide happenings. Campus partners will be hosting various events throughout the course of the week and details will be added to our Reunions and Registered Events page as plans become finalized for you to learn more. We have exciting plans underway that can be accessed on the website during the week of events that will include opportunities to tour campus facilities, compete for prizes in our online scavenger hunt and much, much more!
Homecoming week will conclude on November 14 with the Purdue game against Northwestern University and awarding the Homecoming Pillars of Excellency winners. Game time is still to be announced.
