Welcome new Lutes

New Student Orientation is an exciting event designed to welcome new students to PLU’s vibrant community and allow you to get connected, to be involved and to stay informed. It is a time to learn about the resources you will need to be successful during your time at PLU and to make connections with your fellow Lutes.

Look forward to meeting you

We will help you prepare for your first semester by directing you to various academic resources including your academic advisor, academic assistance, career connections, and other essential offices. You will learn about ways to become involved on campus and engage in exciting PLU traditions. We look forward to meeting you and being a part of your collegiate experience.
