Purdue Northwest Welcome Week
Purdue Welcome Week is held the first week of the Fall and Spring semester, and is a platform to get students connected to the campus and involved in campus life. Each campus hosts a Welcome Rally to showcase the resources available to students on the Purdue University Northwest campuses.
PNW’s Got Talent
Hosted by the Office of Student Life, this annual talent competition modeled after America’s Got Talent gives students the opportunity to compete for prizes in front of a live audience and a panel of judges from northwest Indiana’s entertainment industry. Always a hit, performers have included dancers, singers, a juggler, musicians, a comedian, and even a math wiz. The competition is fierce but so fun to watch!
Holidays Around the World
Each December the Office of Student Life hosts the Holidays Around the World event to kick off the holiday season. Students are able to experience food, activities and learn about how cultures around the world celebrate winter holidays.
Pancake Study Break
A long tradition on the Hammond campus, the Pancake Study Break is now provided on both campus. This event provides students with an opportunity to take a break from studying for their final exams while enjoying a stress free environment filled with all the fixings of a great breakfast. The Pancake Study Break is sponsored by the Office of Student Life, Housing and Residential Education, National Residence Hall Honorary, and the Residence Hall Association.
