What I Like Most About PLU

I like the openness and the diversity of the campus. Since PLU celebrates diversity, it's been an experience for me to meet people from different backgrounds. The Global Student Club has introduced me to people from different countries, and I've learned a lot of new things from them. I also enjoy studying in small classes; it's really nice to be in a class where the professor knows me by name. The professors at PLU have office hours where they can answer any questions that students may have, and I have definitely found that to be helpful

One Piece of Advice:

Try to join the clubs that you're interested in, but don't over-commit yourself. I was really overwhelmed at first because there are so many opportunities for students to join different clubs and organizations. Remember that you do need time to work on homework and reading for classes, and most important of all you need sleep.
