Go Purdue! Support Your Favorite College Team with Your Checks

By Alan Plastin

Do you go to school at Purdue University? Are you a fan of college football and college basketball? Do you cheer for the Boilermakers? Do you have someone playing for one of their great teams? If so, then an extremely simple and affordable way to show your team pride is by purchasing Purdue University personal bank checks.

Purdue University is located in West Lafayette, Indiana. It was established on May 6, 1869 and the first classes were held on September 16, 1874. Nowadays, Purdue has the largest student body of any Indiana university as well as the largest international student enrollment of any public university in the United States.

A founding member of the Big Ten Conference, Purdue is home to 18 Division I/I-A NCAA teams that include football, cross-country, wrestling, basketball, tennis, golf, volleyball, and other sports.

Purdue's men's basketball team has an all-time winning record against all of the Big Ten schools. The men's and women's basketball teams have also won more Big Ten Championships than any other conference school.

Joe Tiller became head coach of the football team in 1996 and since then the Boilermakers have made a bowl appearance every year except in 2005 and 2008. Both Kickoff and Football News named him National Coach of the Year. He was also named the GTE Region 3 Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association and the Big Ten Dave McClain Coach of the Year.

Ross-Ade Stadium is the stadium that the Boilermakers call home. It is named for David E. Ross and George Ade and can hold around 62,000 people. It opened in 1924.

The Boilermaker Special, Purdue Pete, and Rowdy have been some of the school's mascots. The Boilermaker Special is meant to look like a train and symbolizes Purdue's engineering program. In 1887 Purdue's official colors of old gold and black were adopted.

If you are really a loyal fan then you might want to think about the Purdue University #1 Fan check series. These checks, which show a cartoon image of a devoted fan, are for the fans of the team that religiously watch every game, aren't afraid to speak their mind to the television crews, and wear their team's colors with pride.

You can also purchase Purdue University checks that show the official colors and logo of the Boilermakers. Both check series allow you the option of purchasing matching accessories like a coordinating leather checkbook cover, contact cards, and address labels.

Remember, too, that if you want to buy your checks you can do it over the Internet. Not only will you have more check images to pick from, but you can save as much as 50% off the price that your local bank might have charged you. There are really a lot of safe sites available that will not only save you a bit of money, but also get your checks to you in about 5 days. Not long ago, when you bought them at your bank, it frequently took up to 2 weeks to have them delivered. - 31382
