All Together, Let's Support Our Bands

Purdue Day of Giving is an annual university-wide effort to build a better, stronger, more affordable Purdue. For 24 hours, students, alumni, faculty, staff, parents, and friends come together to grant opportunities and transform lives. Through challenges, interactive leaderboards, and some good old-fashioned rivalry, participants are motivated to give back in hopes of pushing their favorite campus, college, school, program or unit to the top.

Purdue Bands & Orchestras

With over 125+ years of rich traditions treasured by students, alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and the community, Purdue Bands & Orchestras provides an opportunity for over 925+ students to continue their lifelong journey with music as performers, patrons and advocates for the arts, while pursuing a degree in any of Purdue University’s disciplines.

From world-renowned performances by over 30 different ensembles to inspiring performances by athletic bands, including the Purdue “All-American” Marching Band, Purdue Bands & Orchestras serves as the “Heartbeat of the University” by supporting a community of students, performing more than 180 events annually, inspiring Boilermaker spirit, and stewarding Purdue’s beloved icons.
