Five Students x Four Years = Five Unique PLU Experiences

Why is THE PNW Special?
From the mountains to the ocean, everything's in reach.

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.
