Five Students x Four Years = Five Unique PLU Experiences

Every college experience is different. Each student takes a unique path from arrival, to sticking with it, to forging forward. We followed a small cohort of students over the course of their college careers to illustrate those different paths, and get a glimpse of their PLU Years.

What’s CAMPUS like?

One of the 50
Best College Towns in America

Why is THE PNW Special?

From the mountains to the ocean, everything's in reach.

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!

For PLU students looking to venture off campus and explore, the university’s Outdoor Recreation program is a handy resource for thoughtful, easily accessible adventures in the great outdoors: hiking, rock climbing, skiing, kayaking.
