WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—Purdue students are gearing up for the semester to start with a week of activities.

Boiler Gold Rush is in full effect for international students.

Other students will start their experience tomorrow on August 12th. 

The themed week takes place before Fall classes begin.

It's aimed at welcoming all incoming Purdue students.

Students learn about campus traditions, Purdue culture, and University resources.

Team Leader, Ashwini, said this is an awesome thing for incoming students to be a part of.

"The bond that I found with my group was really special to me," said Srinivasaprasad. "I want all of the students to have the same experience. I mean I had an amazing experience. So being able to give that to someone I think is very valuable."
