Event description


Happy Anniversary, Execs! You and your family are invited to join other Executive-in-Residence alumni at Purdue University from October 10-13, 2019 for a special EiR reunion, celebrating 5 years of this wonderful alumni-driven and student-centered program. The weekend will be packed with opportunities to meet other EiR alumni, connect with students and staff, attend the EiR Homecoming Tailgate, and of course, cheer on the Boilermakers at Ross-Ade Stadium. In additon to these events, you will have the opportunity to gather as a cohort and envision the next 50 year of Executive-in-Residence!

We hope you can join us for any, if not all, our weekend events. Please select all the events you are interested in attending and provide the number of people you would also like to RSVP for. Please keep in mind for some of the events, there is a cap on the number of people who can attend. These events will be noted in the itinerary.
