Parent eNews November

Dear Parents,

We are very excited to welcome families to campus this weekend for Family Weekend 2013! If you are unable to attend, please encourage your students to go with their friends to enjoy the activities – we are all a part of the LUTE FAMILY and we love to celebrate that! 

Along with Family Weekend, here are some things of interest:

PLU Christmas Concerts

PLU's inspirational Christmas concerts return this year with performances in Seattle's Benaroya Hall, the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall in Portland, and on the PLU campus in Lagerquist Concert Hall. These concerts have become one of the region's most inspirational Christmas celebrations! Tickets go on sale November 1st!

PLU Swimming

With a large number of returners and a speedy freshman class, the team looks to build on the success of last year. Not only did the women's and men's teams break a combined 21 school records at the Northwest Conference Championship, but they also finished with several swimmers in the top three of their respective events.
