With all the social distancing/mask requirements, will students be able to make friends?

Friendship is an important aspect of the college experience. Although the necessary safety regulations may at first seem to minimize social interaction, the focus is on physically distancing rather than on social distancing. Purdue will continue to hold events and students will have opportunities to engage in social activities. However, these activities will be necessarily altered (e.g., < 150) to protect all members of the Purdue community. Students will also still have the opportunity to get involved in student organizations.
