#WhyPLU Week

The week leading up to the May 1 National College Decision Day is now officially #WhyPLU Week!

Delve even deeper into what’s happening on campus, and meet students, faculty and staff in panels designed to answer any questions you have about professor mentorship, student leadership and involvement, the FOOD, student employment, and faith opportunities on campus.

We hope we can help you find your #WhyPLU!

New Lute (In-person!) Celebration

Saturday, May 1, 10:00am-2:00pm PT

Join us by the upper campus PLU monument sign (on the corner of Park Ave & Garfield St) for a drive-by New Lute Celebration event! Grab a yard-sign (limited quantity) to showcase your new Lute pride, take a photo with Lance-a-Lute, get some fun PLU swag, and join in our “Why PLU” Chalk writing event around campus. This event is come-and-go style, so show up whenever works best for you between 10am and 2pm. (Mask wearing and physical distancing is required.)

We look forward to celebrating with YOU!

Faculty Mentorship at PLU

Watch the Recording

Mentorship is a keystone of a PLU education and at PLU your opportunities to work with faculty begin in year one. Join current professors and students as they talk about their experience as mentors and mentees and how it has impacted their time at PLU.

Student Leadership & Involvement

Watch the Recording

Our student body is extremely engaged and the elected student leaders of the Associated Students of Pacific Lutheran University (ASPLU) – our student government – are some of the most engaged leaders at PLU. Join current ASPLU leaders to ask questions about how to get involved on campus, changes for next year from a student perspective, and anything else that is on your mind!
