My Story
How did you come to PLU?

I stumbled across PLU in a Princeton Review Book of Colleges several years ago when I began searching for a place to pursue higher education. Little did I know that this place would have such a profound impact on how I see myself, my community and our complex world. After several years away from the campus pursuing graduate studies, living abroad and working in various non profits, I couldn't resist the urge to return to campus to serve in the Center for Community Engagement and Service.
