Jesse Major wrote about the first On-The-Road experience hosted by Career Connections to Alaska Airlines and World Vision. Getting an insider perspective from alums working at both companies, including CEO of Alaska Airlines, Brad Tilden ’83, hearing about internship opportunities, and attending an alumni networking event afterwards made this a very successful event!
Celebrate. Remember. Fight Back! Attended by students across campus, staff members at PLU, faculty departments, and community members around Parkland and Tacoma, Relay For Life is an 18-hour event which helps raise funds for cancer research and patient support services provided by the American Cancer Society. Come join and encourage your student to be a part of this event which kicks off on Friday, April 26th at 6:00pm on the PLU track.
Zipcar can be used as an alternative to the costs and hassles of owning or renting a car. It's also more flexible than public transportation. There are 2 Zipcars on campus available to PLU students ages 18+, and becoming a Zipcar member is easy! Members pay one simple hourly (or daily) rate that includes gas, insurance, maintenance, a reserved parking space, 180 free miles per trip, roadside assistance and 24-hour customer service. It costs as little as $8 per hour and $66 per day.
Help your student de-stress from a busy semester by sending them a Well-Being Bag! This rejuvenating reusable Rume bag comes filled with David Rio Chai, Boots Extracts Body Butter, Naked Bee SPF 15 lip balm, an exercise journal, and a 16oz ceramic mug. You can also check out the other great Send a Smile Packages available at the Garfield Book Company. Each Send a Smile Package is hand-delivered directly to your student's Residence Hall, or if your student lives off campus, they can pick up the gift at the Garfield Book Company. Each package comes complete with a personal message from you!
Amy Larson is a senior from Yakima, Washington who has made the most of her time at PLU. Rather than just experiencing PLU, she became a part of it – working on campus and being in leadership roles, volunteering her time on committees and in the community, making life-long friendships, and studying abroad. Amy will serve one year with Lutheran Volunteer Corps after she graduates in May.
