The Big Ten is Big Time for varsity athletics, but you don't have to be a world-class athlete to participate.

Varsity Athletics

The spirit of competition lives and breathes at Purdue, where many Boilermaker teams enjoy the support of their student cheer squads. From the Paint Crew for Men's Basketball to the Block Party for Women's Volleyball, it's Division 1 athletics at its best!
