Reimagined residence hall move-in process for students
Before arriving, students were given prep materials orienting them to campus, including health-related expectations such as required pre-arrival COVID-19 testing.
- Boiler Gold Rush for incoming freshmen was adapted to incorporate safety practices and to de-densify activities. Residence hall move-in was staggered over five days rather than the normal two days.
- This prolonged schedule enabled a ramp-up period to begin Protect Purdue communication, education and health screenings.
- Before the start of the Spring 2021 semester, Boiler Cold Rush was redesigned to welcome and orient those students who couldn’t get to campus until January 2021 because of the pandemic.
