What’s one thing every prospective student should know about PLU?

What do you like about living in the Northwest?

As a born and raised Washingtonian I’ve come to realize one absolute truth about the Pacific Northwest – the views here are killer! From the city skyline to the lush vegetation, we are surrounded by ample beauty. I love how accessible the ocean, mountains, woods and cities are. These elements not only serve as eye candy, but also as an opportunity for great adventures.


  • I love trying new things! Whether it’s trying different foods, engaging in various activities, or visiting a location for the first time, I’m always down to explore. If I’m not out and about, you can probably find me with a book in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other.
