What do you like most about PLU?
People. I like the people at PLU the most ~^o^~. As an international student, I’ve learned the need for my family and my friends more than ever. I believe it is the most important to feel supported and taken care of for me to be motivated in this new place. At PLU, I can come meet with the professors in their office hours or through email whenever I need. This is great as I don’t feel distant with my own professors, the people who bring me knowledge every day. Further, there are people that are willing to talk to me about my problems. It warms my heart because people here do care about you!

What’s one piece of advice you would give to incoming students?
Get out of your comfort zone. This is what I’ve heard so many times before I came here. I know it’s hard but it’s all worth it at the end. Meeting new people, joining in the clubs that you’re interested in, enjoying your college life! You’ll never know if you don’t try, maybe you can meet friends for life just from that one event you’re not so sure to attend 😉
