#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!

Faculty Mentorship at PLU

Monday, April 26th, 5:30-6:15pm PT

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

Tuesday, April 27th, 5:30-6:15pm PT

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!

Meals at PLU

Wednesday, April 28th, 5:30-6:15pm PT

Are you curious about what eating is like on campus? We’ll talk through meal plans, share insight into how our wonderful staff create meals and give plenty of time to answer any questions you have!

Student Employment

Thursday, April 29th, 5:30-6:15pm PT

If you are interested in having a job on campus then this panel is for you! Join current students and staff from the Office of Alumni and Career Connections to learn what the process is like to apply for a job on campus, how to use work study (if it was a part of your financial aid package), and what it’s like to work while a college student.

Faith at PLU

Friday, April 30th, 5:30-6:15pm PT

Lots of students ask “How big is faith at PLU?” and that is what we’ll talk about in this panel! Find out how different students involve faith in their lives at PLU (if they choose to), get the questions you have about faith opportunities on campus answered, and learn more about how PLU’s ‘middle name’ influences our approach to your college education!
