If this list of clubs didn’t strike your interest, Purdue’s full list of clubs can be found on BoilerLink. I talked on Instagram this morning about the importance of relishing in your time at Purdue. I believe getting involved and joining a club is an amazing way to meet people and do just that.
Don’t forget about Purdue’s 4-3-2-1-Graduate initiative:
4 – Graduate in four years
3 – Maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average
2 – Study two hours for every hour spent in a classroom

If you stay on top of your studies the 4-3-2 should be easy enough, but the only way to make one leadership commitment is to get involved.
