J-Term Programs

J-Term at PLU is a different pace than Fall or Spring.  Students are typically enrolled in just one class meaning more down time to study, work, and prepare and plan for the Spring term to come.  This year The CAVE and Kreidler Lounge have planed a month of programs to further develop community and jump start your job/internship/leadership search and application.
