Bayley '21, Global Studies and Hispanic Studies
Hello fabulous PLU donor – thank you so, so much for all of your generosity! My experience so far at PLU has been wonderful and life-changing. I feel so thankful that I have the opportunities that PLU allows me to have, and they would not be possible without your support! 🙂
Caeden '22, Political Science
These last few months at PLU have been undeniably some of the best of my life. Without donors like you, the financial aid necessary for me to attend this prestigious university wouldn’t have been possible and I simply wouldn’t be here.
Lindsey '22, Music Education
I am ever so grateful to you for your contribution to my education, and my endeavor to better myself. Without your amazing support I would not be able to go to PLU, or even go to a post-secondary institution at all. Because of you, I have the chance of a lifetime to fulfill what I believe my purpose to be. Thank you.
Kylee '21, Exercise Science
I absolutely love it here! I have grown more emotionally, mentally and spiritually while being here and this wouldn’t have been possible without you! Thank you!
Allison '22, Environmental Studies
Since starting school, I have learned more about how different areas of study overlap than I ever knew before, met some fantastic friends that I know I’ll have for a long time, joined a new sport, and felt myself grow as a thinker and a leader. Without your generosity, this would not have been possible. Thank you.
Hillary '21, Nursing
It has been my dream to go to college and I didn’t think it was possible because of money. With your generous contribution, you made my dream come true and I have the opportunity to give back and pursue my dream. Thank you so much and know that your donation will not go to waste.
Alanna '19, Kinesiology
My experience at PLU has been awesome since getting out of the military. PLU has welcomed me and my fellow Vets with open arms. Veteran support programs wouldn’t be possible without support from people like you! Thanks so much!
Lukas '19, Anthropology and Hispanic Studies
Your donation is really important because of how it allows people from diverse backgrounds and experiences to come here. PLU sets itself apart because of how much they give in scholarships. Our campus community is so much more engaged and knowledgeable because of it.
Allie '21, Biology
Thank you so much for your donation! My time at PLU has taught me to embrace diversity and individuality in the field of laboratory research and in life in general. My presence and experience here wouldn’t be possible without your support! Thank you!
Jensen '22, Biology and Chemistry
I want to personally thank you for allowing the young minds of this generation to express and inspire others to follow their dreams. Without you, I would not be here at PLU, learning something new everyday. I am always surrounded by professors, faculty and peers that are passionate and dedicated to help and support students. Thank you for everything. ❤
Solen '22, Communications
Thank you for your gift of education – the gift you are giving is priceless and a gift that will continue to give forever, I hope. Your kindness is so appreciated, and I hope you know all of PLU is ever grateful to people like you.

Thank you for your generosity! My time at PLU has been transformative. The people I have met here and the things I have learned, in and out of the classroom, will stay with me forever. This would not be possible without your support. Thank you so much, I would not be here without you.
