Cassandra Kopriva


Senior Assistant Director of Admission & Campus Visit Coordinator

Cassandra is a Washington native, living everywhere from Federal Way and Auburn, to Kennewick and Cheney, but now she calls Tacoma home. When she is not at home with her husband and loving cats (Tulio and Ziki), you can find Cassandra out eating at restaurants in the area, or getting involved with the community. “I love living in Tacoma, which I was at first surprised by. There is so much to do outdoors, so many local parks to explore, places to eat, museums to visit but yet, the city doesn’t feel too big. I love that with PLU we are a smaller community, with such great access to a great city with a variety of things to do.”

Cassandra is a very proud first-generation college student and loves connecting with students as they go through the college search process. “There is no question too big or too small – you don’t know what you don’t know. So ask away! That is what I am here for and I will always do my best to help you.”

Major: Communication with an emphasis in Public Relations
