General travel:

  • indiana.edu says nearest airport is IND [1]
  • purdue.edu says nearest airport is Purdue University Airport, but also [4] covers ground transport
    • [5] is a 1.5h $27 shuttle from IND airport to Purdue campus
  • chicago.edu: [6] is a $70, 2h20min one-way from Purdue to Chicago MDW (maybe we can do better)
  • UMN morris: [Can get from Chicago to Minnesota by a few ways for $25-100 per head one-way.
    • Then take a shuttle to Morris. [7]
    • Shuttle worst-case $70/head [8] 4h ride
  • Back to Minneapolis, $70/head
  • Fly back to BOS/SFO from MSP
    • These flights are fairly unconstrained

Ground travel:

  • Renting a car is at least $31/day which is ~$850, so that's the price to beat.
  • Sum of the above is ~$319/head, 2x of which is $638. The more expensive legs might be best done with a car, but then again maybe not if I can laptop in the shuttle (-:
