Sam moved to Tacoma, WA to attend PLU after graduating High School from a small town in Minnesota whose only tourist attraction is the World’s Largest Ball of Twine. He graduated from PLU with a B.A. in both Communication and Theatre. Sam loves the PLU community and says it feels like Washington’s own little slice of Minnesota because the people are so friendly. What he enjoys the most about his job is getting to welcome students and alumni into the newly remodeled Nesvig Alumni Center and helping to facilitate connections between alumni with each other as well as with students.
