In the dynamic realm of the internet, where hashtags reign supreme and viral moments unfold at the speed of a double-tap, staying in the loop is both an art and a necessity. We’ve curated a roundup of the top five most buzzworthy and unmissable Top 5 posts from 2023 from the PLU admission blog.

Not one, but two of our “You ask, we answer” series made it into the Top 5! Here are the top questions of 2023: What is NCAA Division III and Where do I find my PLU student ID number?

RELATED: We recently posted a fall 2023 sports recap; check it out to see the sports PLU offers. Spoiler: We had three NCAA national tournament qualifiers!

We know why “Your PLU student ID number” ranked so high in our Top 5: It is vital for recently admitted students who are ready to take their next steps. Were you recently admitted? First, a big congratulations! And, make sure to read up if you need help locating your PLU student ID number.

Next on the most popular post list is FAQ: What is January Term? What perfect timing because when students return in 2024, they will start the January term or J-Term (with many taking PLU’s unique J-Term study abroad classes!).

Curious about campus life? The last two posts on our Top 5 list give details on college living: What’s in our room: Take a tour of Tingelstad and Preparing for your move to PLU: A packing checklist. Both posts give great insight into what it is like to live on campus at PLU. One even includes a surprise Peppa Pig cameo. 🐷
