Giving to Purdue Memorial Union
We know all of Purdue's students benefit from the academic instruction they are provided through our many outstanding schools and departments. But, for many alumni, the memories they hold closest to their hearts are those that took place outside of the classroom.
Increasingly, our alums are looking for ways to celebrate these special experiences by giving back to the areas that gave so much to them. Former counselors and resident assistants are making gifts and creating endowments to help those who serve in these important roles today. Explore these pages - maybe you'll find a way to give back that's meaningful to you!
