By The Numbers



Campus Life

Life as a Lute is about more than just going to class. PLU students are active and involved–in the residence halls; on athletic fields, courts and in the stands; on the stage and in the audience for performing arts; and in scores of campus clubs.

Pacific Northwest

We love our location—mountains, water, and lots of green. Seattle is a short drive away, and even closer is downtown Tacoma. And yeah, it rains, but not as much as you might think. Plus, that’s how everything stays so green!
