Swiss Cheese Gift Box

Everyone loves cheese, but our students will love you more when you purchase Purdue Ag Alumni Swiss Cheese. Purdue Swiss is not only a Boilermaker tradition, but also a fundraiser for students in the College of Agriculture. Your purchase goes toward the Purdue Ag Alumni Trust Fund, providing opportunities for students through programs, scholarships, trips and even student space.

The cheese program began in 1969 by Dave Pfendler, a 38-year employee of Purdue who retired in 1974 as associate dean of agriculture, as a fundraising enterprise for Purdue agricultural students.

Purdue Swiss is available online year-round and gift boxes come in the following sizes.

  • 2lb wheel
  • 5lb wheel
  • 4 – 1.25lb quarters
  • 4 – 1lb assorted cheeses
Order Online

The cheese is packaged in an insulated box with cooler packs to keep it fresh for up to four days. In addition to online orders, the product will soon be available at West Lafayette PayLess stores and the Boiler Butcher Block.

Here’s what to expect when you order your gift box online:
