Five Students x Four Years = Five Unique PLU Experiences

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.
