The Slayter Center of Performing Arts is located on the main campus of Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana. It is an outdoor concert bandshell completed in 1964 and dedicated May 1, 1965. The facility was a gift from Games Slayter and his wife Marie.
On the morning of home football games, Slayter Center becomes the site of a pep rally known as "Thrill on the Hill." The Purdue All-American Marching Band performs upbeat tunes showcasing music from their half time show for the day, plus other selections from the season's repertoire. Fans can meet and get autographs from the Purdue Cheerleaders and mascot Purdue Pete, or check out the Boilermaker Special before heading to Ross-Ade Stadium with the band for the pre-game.
In winter, students often sled on Slayter Hill.
