Community.  One of the important aspects of PLU is the great feeling of being part of a supportive community of learners.  New students at PLU were invited to read a common book as a way to share ideas, get to know one another, and engage in a lively discussion of important themes during New Student Orientation. We now invite family members to join our discussion on this year’s common read Into Thin Air by Jon Krakuer. Check out this interview with the author to learn a little more about the book.

Nigel Larson is one of the fresh faces coming out of the blossoming Seattle comedy scene! Originally from upstate New York, Nigel gained some local notoriety back home when he was covered by the Rochester Metromix paper, Insider. First being named “top 5 funniest in Rochester under 30″ and then was on the cover as, “the face of Rochester comedy,” in 2010. After relocating to the Puget Sound, Nigel hit the ground running being hired as the house M.C. at half the local clubs for his clean and clever act. Nigel can be seen doing local commercials airing on A&E and the Food Network, or opening for such National acts as Tommy Johnagin, Jake Johannsen, Myq Kaplan, Jimmy Dore, Kyle Cease, Jon Dore, Tom Rhodes and many more!
