Join us in sending off the Class of 2023!

Summer Send-Offs will be coming soon! Support students in your area who will be attending PLU in the fall. This is a great opportunity to connect local Lutes with new students and their families, share experience and advice, and welcome new students into the Lute family before they arrive on campus.

New students, current students, alumni and Lute families are welcome and encouraged to attend Summer Send-Offs.

If you have any questions about Summer Send-Offs, please contact Kathy Engle at engle@plu.edu
