Help Shape the Honors College for Years to Come

Graduating from Purdue University doesn't mean your involvement in the Honors College has to come to an end. You have the opportunity to continue positively impacting present Honors College students and their endeavors. Proximity to West Lafayette isn't a requirement either, as we can easily keep in touch through email, phone, or traditional mail.
