What is PORC?
PORC is an acronym that stands for Purdue Off Road Club. We were officially formed as a Purdue University Organization in the spring semester of 2002. Although a majority of our members own Jeep vehicles, we are not a Jeep club. Our members own a variety of vehicles from Jeep Wranglers, CJs, and YJs, Hummers, Lifted Trucks, Scouts, Dirtbikes, Four Wheelers, and sometimes they don't even own an off-road vehicle or have never experienced the sport of Four Wheel Drive!
What is our purpose?
The Purdue Off-Road Club (PORC) provides a community for any and all Purdue University students, faculty, staff, and alumni who enjoy the sport of "off roading." Our organization educates members on techniques and fundamentals of operating a vehicle off road, as well as various tasks on repairing and upgrading four wheel drive machines. We host various events that bring the members together to cooperate as a group such as riding trails and repairing/upgrading vehicles. The Purdue Off-Road Club promotes the "Tread Lightly" motto, which basically teaches drivers to have respect for our Planet Earth, and to leave her as close to how we found her. Our club and our members also receive the benefit of full membership into the United Four-Wheel Drive Association as well as the Indiana Four-Wheel Drive Association.
Must be a student, faculty, staff, or alumni of Purdue University to official join. However, we do invite others to join us on our forums and trails.
