Delta Rho Gammas
In 1929, President Tingelstad gave permission to name the Day Room Girls (the women who did not live on campus but commuted to PLU) the Delta Rho Gammas, if they didn't refer to themselves as sorority girls. Ida Hinderlie was the first president. Ruth Gausch and Mildred Gault have been good about getting this group together for lunch once each month. Pictured here are a few of the original PLU Delta Rho Gammas: Angela, Mildred, Ruth, Louise, Ruth and Ida.

Angela, Time, and Julie

Lutes gather together all across America! Angela Jantz '00, Tim Ho '96 and Julie Johnston '99 got together to share traditional Hawaiian appetizers known as "pupus" at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel on the beach of Waikiki.

Former Lute football great, Albert Jackson III '94

California alumni, parents and friends turned out in great numbers to cheer for the PLU football team at the PLU-Azuza Pacific football game in September. These Lutes were hosted by Alumni Board members Dave Johnson '74 and Al Dungan ' 59 (who was in town visiting from Minneapolis). Dave and Al, put up a tent and welcomed fellow Lutes by handing out Go Lutes! signs and pins! PLU may have lost that game, but made NCAA-III playoffs for the fourth consecutive year.

Fall Fun!
Annie (Newton) Thompson '90, Linda Trendler '90, Sue Ann (Garrison) Brydson '90 gathered at the home of Rod '90 and Stacy (Bryan) Bigelow '93 to carve pumpkins with the "kids", or so they said. Do you see any "kids" in this picture?

On the left side of the table are Ray Dewey (who along with his wife Elizabeth seated across the table, are proud parents of Heather '01), Parents Council members Mary and Tom Renne (proud parents of Julie '01 and Mark '05) and Parents Council co-chair Bill Buck (who along with his wife Anne are the proud parents of Andrew '01 and Abby '03).

Proud Parent Day
Several hundred parents gathered on Saturday, November 10 to celebrate Proud Parent Day at PLU. Coach Frosty Westering kicked off the day with a LUTE Welcome! Later, PLU parents and students had the opportunity to hear from Parents Council Co-Chair Bill Buck, ASPLU President Tim Vialpando '02 and PLU President Loren Anderson. Following breakfast, and a mad dash to the PLU Bookstore, the crowd of Lutes joined other PLU alumni, parents, students and friends at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup for the football contest between PLU and cross-town rivals UPS. Many parents came for the weekend and by Sunday evening had also attended University Congregation, the Parents Council meeting and/or had visited other local establishments. We look forward to welcoming the family members of ours students back to campus for Family Weekend, March 1-3.
