One of my favorite things about going to school at Purdue is that atmosphere of the campus on game days! This past weekend was the Marshall vs. Purdue game and the Boilermakers came out with a win! It’s so much fun to be able to sit in the student section during football games and get to interact with everything going on during the game. Purdue has so many traditions and cheers on game day and it never gets boring. I love seeing all the tailgaters, the breakfast clubbers, and the friends and families that join together for the purpose of cheering on our football team. This past game I got to sit near the front row of the stands in the stadium and had a great view of the field. I sat with a group of friends who all painted up for the game and we even got to be on tv!
Not only was there a football game on Saturday but it was also Family Day at Purdue which is always another exciting time of year. We had an event Saturday morning where students and their families could come enjoy a free breakfast while talking with other students and professors in the College of Health and Human Sciences here at Purdue. It was a great experience for me to get to meet other students and professors in my college and of course, being a poor college student, I got to enjoy a free meal! My family was also able to come up for the game as well. We also were able to do some tailgating before the game with friends. It was just a great day to spend with my family on campus as well as to enjoy a wonderful home football game! I wouldn’t choose to have these experiences anywhere else!
