PRIDE PREVAILS TRADITIONS AND FACTS

HAIL, HAIL TO OLD PURDUE! With a rich tradition and a global reach, Purdue’s flagship West Lafayette campus is home to 43,000 students from all 50 states and nearly 130 foreign countries. Renowned initially for its programs in agriculture and engineering, our academic repertoire now includes 200+ majors and more than 80 graduate programs. In addition, we have nearly 1,000 diverse student organizations. BOILERMAKER Our “Boilermaker” nickname dates to 1891, when Purdue football players were featured in a Crawfordsville newspaper headline after they soundly defeated Wabash College.

PURDUE PETE Pete is our unofficial mascot, and is one of the most recognized characters in NCAA sports. Although he’s undergone a few makeovers, you’ll usually see him with trademark helmet and hammer, ready to cheer the Boilermakers on to victory.

AN INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY Purdue ranks as the No. 4 public institution in the U.S. for international student enrollment with 4,600 undergraduate international students and over 4,200 at the graduate and professional levels. Additionally, about 20 percent of our faculty was born outside the United States.

HAIL PURDUE Although University events are the most likely place for Boilermakers to join in a chorus of Purdue’s official fight song, it’s not uncommon to hear it somewhere on campus every day.

BOILERMAKER SPECIAL Purdue’s official mascot is the Boilermaker Special locomotive, and the first rendition of the Special was presented to the student body on Sept. 11, 1940.

OUR PLACE IN SPACE Purdue is called the “cradle of astronauts” for good reason. Twenty-four graduates have become astronauts, including the first and most recent people to walk on the moon. And yet, we have an even broader link to space exploration. Many Purdue professors and students — past and present — are deeply involved in research that furthers our reach into space while improving lives on Earth. See purdue.edu/space.

The splendor of the 164,000-square-foot building is the look and feel of the interior, rich with reproductions of historic photos and salvaged artifacts that memorialize the 1924 Heat and Power Plant with its towering smokestack that occupied this location for nearly 90 years. It was a source of power and heat to the University, and also a laboratory, or “active learning” experience for engineering students.

UNIVERSITY HALL 672 Oval Drive

Schleman Hall, home to Purdue student services and undergraduate admissions, is named for Helen Schleman, director of the first women’s residence hall in 1934 and who served as dean of women, 1947-68. She championed women’s rights, including terminating a curfew for women students and spearheading a freshman conference program for women.

The only building remaining from the original six-building campus, University Hall was dedicated in 1877. Known as “The Main Building,” it cost $35,000 to complete and originally housed the Office of the President, a chapel and classrooms. It was remodeled in 1961 to house the Department of History. Two Great Cities. One Great University.
