Boilermaker Carol Holiday Video
In the spirit of celebrating the joy of the holiday season, Purdue Marketing and Communications is pleased to share our 2021 holiday video, “A Boilermaker Carol”. Featuring a cast of Purdue students, the beloved tune “Hail Purdue” has been reimagined as a holiday song. Purdue landmarks and traditions are featured as students share the spirit of the season with each other all over campus.
This content is ideal for sharing during the holiday season, particularly December through January, and will help to build brand affinity with Purdue audiences. Sharing this content will keep momentum moving toward our content during an otherwise slower season. Share the video link on your social media channels, in e-newsletters, and any other communication avenues you operate.
