Special note about Boiler Bridge Bash:
The B-Involved Fair is replacing what has traditionally been Boiler Bridge Bash (a Greater Lafayette Commerce-powered event).

With the continual increase in enrollment, Purdue is eliminating off-campus events due to the logistics of transporting 10,000 students. While we are sad to see this event change, we are working with the city on other fun initiatives to bring the students across the bridge and introduce them to the surrounding community.
