Purdue Boilermakers

Boilermakers is the official nickname for the intercollegiate athletic teams of Purdue University. As is common with athletic nicknames, it is also used as colloquial designation of Purdue's students and alumni at large. The nickname is often shortened to "Boilers" by fans of the school.

Purdue has one of the few college athletic programs that is not funded by student fees or subsidized by the university.[1][2]
