WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Before the tailgating began, Purdue students were out Saturday morning for the first Breakfast Club of fall semester.
Students flooded Chauncey Mall to grab a bite to eat and hang out with some friends.
Some students said they woke up as early as 4 a.m., just to get a table at one of the bars. However, it was costumes that grabbed everyone's attention before the big game against Indiana State.
"I think we're just going to chop down those Sycamores at the base. I am a logger myself today. That's my costume," said Purdue senior Taylor Plank.
"We always go online and look at a bunch of costumes. We never want to be something that we see out," said Purdue Senior Maria Menard. "We're always trying to do something different than everyone has done before. We might try to be boxers next time."
"It's been fine. We've talked to a few people, but the students have been well behaved, have had no fights, haven't put anyone in jail this morning and that's the goal. No one's hurt . We've had no violence. Everything else has been fine. Everybody's having a good time," said West Lafayette Police Captain Gary Sparger.
Part of State Street was barricaded to protect the students from passing cars.
Indiana Governor Mike Pence (R) proposed a pre-K voucher program as part of his 2014 agenda. The program would give underprivileged children access to pre-K programs.
