Virtual Community Service

Virtual service is a type of volunteerism that allows you to share your time and talents as members through service away from any physical site of an organization or project.

  • Be My Eyes: Be of service to those who are visually impaired through FaceTime.
  • Charity Miles: Earn money for the charity of your choice by walking.
  • School in the Cloud: Provide guidance and inspiration for children abroad.
  • Trivia: Answer questions to donate rice to people in need.
  • DoSomething.org: All you need to make a difference is an internet connection.


Development & Networking

  • LUTE Link: A university-wide online networking platform where students can connect with alumni and resources they need to achieve their academic, career, and personal goals.
  • Ted Talks – Select a Ted Talk and follow it up with a group chat/community discussion.
  • PLU Career Services


Health & Wellness

There is a lot going on in the world. Take a moment to breathe, re-center yourself, and/or be active.


Outdoor & Nature

With proper physical distancing practices, you can take a break from indoor spaces. Whether you are on the PLU campus, in WA state, or your home state, these ideas will motivate you to go outside.

Studies show time in nature decreases stress and anxiety.
