Welcome, Lutes! The Center for Student Success is excited to help you transition to PLU and make your first semester a success. This web page should be your go-to for all questions related to your first semester.

How to use these Resources

  • Start with Academics at PLU. This will be your introduction to classes, registration, and timelines at PLU. After you watch this video, you are ready to meet with your new Student Success Advisor to learn more about your Fall 2022 schedule.
  • Meet your advisor! Use the tabs at the bottom of this page to learn more about your Advisor before your meeting.
  • If you have not taken your Math Placement Evaluation then you should watch the Math Placement Evaluation PLU video next. If you have already taken the evaluation then you can skip to the next video.

  • We recommend watching the rest of the videos on this page with your support people so that everyone is up to date on all of the info you need for Fall 2022.

Meet your Advisor

I work primarily with biology, theatre, criminal justice, and transfer students. My favorite part of working with my students is watching them really discover who they are outside of the first 18 years of their lives. The development and growth is really exciting!

Angie Hambrick is a Black woman committed to modeling #blackjoy. She enjoys spending time with her son, The Golden Girls, Americanos with nonfat milk, and buying new pens (her favorites right now are the iBayam Journal Planner Fine Point Markers). Angie advises students of color, particularly first-year Black students and can’t wait to meet with students IRL (all health and safety directives in place, of course).

Aloha mai kakou! My name is Nicole and I am the Director of the Center for Diversity, Justice, and Sustainability. One of my favorite things about advising is geeking out with students when they learn something exciting and celebrating when they meet their personal goals.  If I am not in the Center for DJS or teaching in Native American and Indigenous Studies, you can find me paddling SUP and outriggers on the Coast Salish waterways.

I advise students interested in nursing.  I love watching students walk the stage at graduation and celebrating their success with them.  I love to figure out options for students and find a schedule or class that really fits ‘them’.  In my downtime, I love to read, workout and travel.  I try and hit the gym almost every a.m. and try and hit the books every p.m.

Rebecca Williams moved to Puyallup, WA in 2019 from Pitt Meadows, BC Canada. She enjoys spending time with her husband, daughter and dog Marley, playing football and soccer, teaching music, sewing, and crochet. Before becoming an advisor she was a middle/high school teacher specializing in Music and Special Education. She loves working with students to find their passions and interests in life. She is excited to join the wonderful advising team and faculty at PLU.

I advise: students who are still deciding on a major.
What I love about advising: I love working with students who are just beginning their higher education journey and assisting them in discovering what they are passionate about and how they might pursue that through their coursework, major selection, and co-curricular engagement.
About me:  I am a northwest native and a proud PLU alum who loves and supports the mission of this university.  I work primarily in the Wild Hope Center for Vocation and love nothing more than listening to students and supporting them as they think about and articulate their purpose and calling both as a PLU student and beyond. I have been married to my spouse a.k.a. the Mister for 37 years.  Together we have two children, four grandchildren and one spoiled Puggle named Penny.
