We've left footprints for over 150 years.

Purdue University’s Sesquicentennial celebration is a time to reintroduce Purdue’s people — past, present, and future — to the world. It’s a time to redefine the scope of land-grant universities and challenge global leaders to take GIANT LEAPS in solving worldwide problems.

Ideas Festival

The centerpiece of Purdue’s Giant Leaps Sesquicentennial Campaign will be an Ideas Festival that connects world-renowned speakers and Purdue expertise in a conversation on the most critical problems and opportunities facing our world.

Cross-disciplinary discussions and events aligned with the four Giant Leaps themes will run the course of the entire year, from Homecoming 2018 to Homecoming 2019.
