The Arts

Love the arts? So do we. Nearly half of PLU students are involved in our different arts programs—and you don’t have to major in the arts to be involved.

Imagine performing a sold-out Christmas Concert in PLU’s  spectacular Lagerquist Concert Hall; building a set for the next play in the multimillion dollar Karen Hille Phillips Center for the Performing Arts; choreographing a dance for Dance Ensemble, one of the most popular performances on campus every year; or displaying your artwork in the University Gallery.

Your individuality, creativity and expression are supported and developed here.

Artistic Achievement Scholarships

$1,000-$10,000 per year artistic achievement scholarships are available to majors AND non-majors.
