Welcome to Lute Look! This series of events is here to help you learn more about PLU and those areas that interest you specifically. Get helpful and timely information and let the PLU experts answer the questions you have.

TUESDAY, DECEMBER 1

Do you hate answering the question ‘what do you want to study in college’? You shouldn’t! It means you are open-minded to various academic areas and as a liberal arts university, we love that. At PLU we value the word ‘vocation’ and how that helps determine your path. Join members of the PLU community who will answer questions about the benefits of being ‘undecided’ at a liberal arts university, how to start exploring major options, and discovering what your ‘vocation’ might be.

Starts at 4:00 p.m. PST
