Important Information Regarding Guests

Christa Pazera, director of Residential Life for University Residences at Purdue reminds us of ways our residents can do their part to #ProtectPurdue this Labor Day weekend.

In this video, Christa outlines two simple guidelines students and visitors must follow to help protect themselves, others and the Purdue community. 

  • The first being that only fellow West Lafayette Purdue students may visit residential rooms because we know they have gone through our testing protocols.
  • If friends and family want to visit, they may do so in hall lobbies or exterior spaces and must wear a mask at all times when entering any campus building or if a minimum of 6 feet of physical distancing is not possible, including outdoors.

We’re all in this together and we thank you for doing your part to #ProtectPurdue in order to keep us on track for this year’s academic calendar. For more information on ways University Residences is working to Protect Purdue, please see our Protect Purdue FAQs. To stay up-to-date with Purdue's efforts, please visit https://protect.purdue.edu/. Boiler Up, Hail Purdue and Happy Labor Day weekend, Boilermakers!

Student Workers Grow Professional, Personal Skills with Dining & Culinary

There are many different avenues to leadership positions with Purdue Dining & Culinary.

For Noor Elmhadi, student human resources manager at Ford Dining Court, the process started as a mandate from her parents to replace her off-campus job with an on-campus position. She began her employment in Dining & Culinary through the Jumpstart program, which allows students to move in to their residence hall six days before Boiler Gold Rush, receive training and start their jobs early.
