This years calendar cover was designed by Zach Neulieb. It features the Schenectady No. 2, which for many years Purdue operated along with the Schenectady No. 1, on a dynamometer in an engineering laboratory on the West Lafayette campus. (Source: http://www.westkentuckynrhs.org/archives/1629)

Over the past 67 years Mortar Board has given nearly one million dollars in fellowships to Purdue students pursuing graduate degrees. The money for these fellowships and awards comes largely from the annual sales of the well-known calendar, appropriately named, the Mortar Board. Thanks to the sale of 22,100 calendars this year, Mortar Board will again present fellowships to Purdue seniors who plan to pursue graduate education.
We invite you to take a moment to walk through almost 50 years of past Mortar Board Calendar covers
and the representative Mortar Board classes that chose them.
About Mortar Board at Purdue University
Mortar Board, upon its founding at Syracuse University in 1918, became the first national organization honoring senior college women. In the Fall of 1926, the Purdue Chapter of Mortar Board was chartered and since that time has grown to preeminence in the national organization, which claims 226 college chapters. Mortar Board remained a society for senior women until 1975 when men were permitted to be selected to its prestigious ranks. more
