College is Hard. (And here’s why you’ll succeed.)

By Steve Hansen

The first year of university life is a time of transition.

There’s a reason some students find it exciting; others find it unsettling. Usually, it’s a mixture of both.

At PLU, it is understood that students will have multiple feelings. After all, take 700+ students who don’t know each other, put them on a single campus, and give them the freedom and support to study and explore anything they want – well, anything can happen. That’s why university life is so great.

We asked seven first-year students and their professors to talk about some of the classes they took during their first year at PLU. The classes are very different. So are the students. But they all have one thing in common – they are given the tools they need to succeed.
