Update your Information!



The following has come to our attention. There are alumni that have a “Do Not Email” flag set on either their University or Purdue Alumni Association records. If you at any time told any part of the university that you want to unsubscribe or told the registrar while a student that you did not want to be contacted, it may still be on your record and will cause you to not receive emails from the PBOAC. The Purdue Alumni Association is in the process of initiating a project to fix this issue, but it will not be completed by homecoming. Please make sure to call, mail, email or text anyone you feel may have missed our communications.
Hail Purdue,

Ready to come home?


Join us November 6-8 back on campus for Homecoming, 2015!  Together we will celebrate fellow band friend and supporter, Roy Johnson, as he completes his final season as the Voice of the “All-American” Marching Band.  We want every alumnus to come back and celebrate Roy’s 60+ year history in our department whether you choose to march or not!  The weekend will kick off with a special dinner celebration in honor of the Johnson’s at the France A. Cordova Recreational Center on the corner of Jishke and Third Street, followed by an alumni band rehearsal in the feature gym.  On Saturday, all alumni will take the field with the current “All-American” Marching Band to perform a halftime show in honor of Roy and Sarah.

To register for all the weekend events just click HERE

A current schedule of events can be found HERE.

Don’t want to march? Still join us!  You can plan on sitting with the alumni band and cheering on the Boilermakers in the alumni band block.  All guests and families joining our alumni can purchase discounted football tickets here.

The uniform is the white baseball cap, white polo, black pants, and black shoes. Jacket is Optional. Order what you need here.

In the meantime, let’s get fired up for another season of Boilermaker Football!!!  I’ll look forward to seeing you in November!
