Welcome to the Purdue Women’s Club Website
The Purdue Women’s Club (PWC) is a 90-year old social and philanthropic organization with over 500 members. Membership is open to all women interested in Purdue and the Greater Lafayette Community. We strive to make our Website user friendly with lots of information about PWC. We hope you will enjoy your visit.
Our purpose is:
Each year, through our dues and fundraising activities, we contribute significant funds to the Span Plan which provides grants of varying amounts to women returning to further their education at Purdue.
Members of similar interests are brought together by PWC within its 40+ vibrant Interest Groups, providing opportunities for activities and friendship. Any Interest Group Chair is available for more information. Once you have joined PWC, you are welcome to attend the Interest Groups. Please click on Interest Groups to the left to see the incredible range of our current groups.
We have a lively Newcomers group. Newcomers can be new to the community, Purdue, or new Purdue Women’s Club members. Throughout the year, monthly meetings introduce newcomers to each other and different aspects of the Greater Lafayette community.
Two all-member luncheons are held each year at the Purdue Memorial Union Ballrooms. The Fall Luncheon is preceded by an Interest Group Fair where you can speak with members from each Interest Group and sign up to join the various groups. For the upcoming club year, the dates are September 30, 2015, and April 7, 2016, with registration open until one week before the event. Dates and registration forms for the luncheons are available if you click on Luncheons.
Additionally, all members are welcomed monthly to get together at area restaurants with the Let's Do Lunch group.
PWC offers three opportunities for travel:
-Educational Excursions provides two bus trips with an educational component and structured agenda.
-Chicago Bus Trips is just that, travel to Chicago by bus the Wednesday after Thanksgiving for your own adventure in the Windy City.
-In addition, the Explore Indiana Interest Group organizes short trips around Indiana by car.
We sincerely invite you to make new friends and explore many new adventures through the Purdue Women’s Club. The membership info is at the Membership Form link.
