Lutes in Alaska

This June, PLU Web Content Manager Chris Albert and PLU Photographer John Froschauer ventured to Alaska to show and tell the story of Lutes who were teaching in remote villages in the state. Of the nine educators teaching in the summer program, eight were Lutes: Kari Olson '11, Linnea Olson '12, Megan Aarsvold '13, McKenzie Allen '13, Alyssa Johnson '13, Nataly Meyer '13, Suzy Olsen '13 and Kelli Peterson '13. Check out their adventures on the blog.

Mark your calendar for PLU Homecoming, October 9-13, 2013

Plans for Homecoming 2013 include something for everyone! While the classes of 1963, 1973, 1978, and 1993 are the featured reunion classes, and the Meant to Live program will focus on the School of Education, there are many ways to for all Lutes to engage at this year's festivities. For example, help us celebrate outstanding athletes at the Athletic Hall of Fame Luncheon and recognize Alumni and friends being honored at the Celebration Banquet. Join us as we dedicate the new and improved theatre facilities in the Karen Hille Philips Center for the Performing Arts and experience live theater with the student production of "Kiss Me Kate." Root for the Lutes and see old friends at the Spirit Tent and Homecoming Football Game. Finally, all are welcome to attend Homecoming Chapel and Homecoming Worship.
