The Office of Alumni and Constituent Relations has created many avenues for you to keep your connections alive. Become a member of the Alumni Online Directory to find ways to contact classmates or make new connections. “Like” the PLU Alumni Facebook page and share your photos from homecoming or your time on campus. Visit the PLU Alumni website often to stay up to date on campus happenings and upcoming events.
Join the Alumni Online Directory to find connections anywhere in the world. Erika Meyer ’11 traveled to Copenhagen, Denmark, after graduation for a yearlong internship. She didn't know anyone in Copenhagen, so she used the Alumni Online Directory to search for alums in the area. She found Cecilia Flachs ’97. Through the directory Erika was able to get in contact with Cecilia who was happy to meet up with Erika and show her around her new home and even offered her a house-sitting job. You too can find connections by class year, location, or career field by searching the Alumni Online Directory. The possibilities are endless.
It's getting close to holiday card time, and what better way to reconnect than send a card to a long lost classmate? But what if you don't know where your former roommate is in life do they live by you? Are they married? The Alumni Online Directory can help with that. You can search the directory by last name, maiden name and class year. The Alumni webpage even offers PLU e-cards that you can personalize and send out.
Registration is free and easy! It is just four quick steps! The PLU Alumni Facebook page is updated on a regular basis with news about campus and alumni happenings. There, you can get involved in friendly competitions like the Lute Pride Photo Contest, which is currently going on. You can also “like” the PLU Alumni Facebook page and share photos of you showing your Lute Pride to be entered to win tickets to a PLU Christmas Concert and other great prizes.
Another great example of Lutes using Facebook to connect with each other is the organization of the PLU Alumni Basketball Tournament during Homecoming. Brandon Fix ’96 created a group on Facebook to get the word out about the tournament. There are many other alumni groups on Facebook and you can find them all on the PLU Alumni Facebook page. Don’t see your group there, let us know and we will add it!
We’ve had many alumni ask about a monthly e-communication, and we have heard you. You should have received the first edition of the PLU Alumni eNews in your inbox in November. Stay up to date with news, photo galleries and videos from campus. Don’t miss this great opportunity to stay connected with campus.
