Dedicated on Sept. 23 as part of this year’s Homecoming events, the Purdue Honor Tracks monument celebrates Purdue’s new student Honor Pledge.

The granite railroad track ties spell out the words from the new student honor pledge: "As a Boilermaker pursuing academic excellence, I pledge to be honest and true in all that I do. Accountable together – We are Purdue." The 40-foot-long monument is located between Elliott Hall of Music, the Psychological Sciences building and Haas Hall. Purdue adopted the student-created honor pledge last year to encourage a culture of academic integrity. (Summarized from Honor Tracks monument commemorates honor pledge, by Kelsey Schnieders in Purdue News, Sept. 25, 2017)
