Explore Ways to Get Involved on Campus!

Apply to Global Campus Connection (GCC)! GCC is a program in which new International Students and current PLU students are matched for a mutually beneficial learning experience. Approximately 50% of PLU students study abroad and they know how important it is for new international students to be connected with local people. Many domestic students have already signed up to help you adjust to your new environment, learn about your culture/ language and just to have a fun time with you! Please join the program by filling out this short application TODAY!

International Education Week (IEW): PLU celebrates IEW in November! Two main events are called, Around the World (11/13) and Global Getdown (11/15). Around the World is an opportunity to showcase your country through hands-on activities and demonstrations with a small audience. If you have a talent for singing, dancing, or playing musical instruments in front of a large audience, Global Getdown is for you! Before you leave your home country, please pack items to share on-campus. We’d love to see your traditional dress, crafts, musical instruments, edible snacks, currencies, arts, pictures, games, etc...Please check out videos of Around the World and Global Getdown!

Global Student Club (GSC): GSC's mission is to promote and encourage the global connections within and outside the PLU community, and to encourage interactions between international and domestic students for cultural and social exchange. If you are interested in joining the club, please email the President of the club, Liz Nguyen: nguyencm@plu.edu.

That's it for now! As always. please email us if you have any questions! We love to hear from you!

Enjoy the summer,
