WHY WE LOVE IT
According to information from Purdue Libraries Archives and Special Collections, in fall 1904 some Purdue seniors noticed a bolt of corn-coloured corduroy fabric displayed in the window of Taylor Steffen Co., a tailor on Main Street in Lafayette.
The tradition evolved to include decorating the cords with lettering and drawings symbolising the seniors’ fraternities, sororities, clubs, majors, home states, and other aspects of their lives.
