Summer Send-off is a special event for incoming students and their families. It is a perfect opportunity for new students to connect with local alumni eager to share advice, get them excited about their new home, and help them to feel a part of the Lute Family before they even arrive on campus. Make new friends, welcome the class of 2025, and build your local PLU community!

New Lutes, current Lutes, alums and all their families are invited! (Kids of all ages are welcome!)

When: Stay Tuned!
Time: TBD
Location: TBD

Registration coming soon!
