The Purdue Honors College is organized by a “House” structure. The Honors Houses are intellectual and social communities that enable our students and faculty to forge stronger connections with each other. The houses offer events, activities and camaraderie for all of our 2,200 students. In a nod to the Honors College icons of the forge and the torch, the houses are named after forgeable metals.
Throughout human history, the forge has been a site of skill, artistry and creativity, where metals are made into innovations. Worked and shaped by the hands of the artisan, metal is crafted into objects of use and beauty. Strong yet malleable, metal is conductive, durable and lustrous. Your mind is your material. You are the artisan. Become whatever you can imagine.
Ignite your imagination. Forge your future.
