Pacific Lutheran University Class of 1968

Greetings Class of 1968!

During Homecoming 2018, we will celebrate our 50th class reunion. We hope you plan to join us. Even though it may seem like a gathering of strangers, the years fall away and recognition and shared times return quickly!

We suggest you reach out to those you would most like to see again at the reunion – your circle of PLU friends – to encourage their attendance and to help make the event special for you. We want to see you there!

We will be compiling submissions from the whole class for the Memory Book. Copies will be ready by our reunion. If you submit a form but are unable to attend, a copy will be mailed to you.

We also invite you to submit any personal college photos for the banquet slideshow. Electronic copies can be sent to alumni@plu.edu. You can also mail photos—just write your name on the back and they will be returned to you.

We extended the deadline! Please submit all photos and memory book forms by Friday, October 12.

Endowed Scholarship

The class of 1968 has decided to create an endowed scholarship in honor of our 50th reunion, and we need your help! Your gift will support students who need additional assistance decreasing “the gap” – that is the difference between the financial aid PLU is able to offer and the cost of attendance.

Questions or concerns?

Contact the Alumni Relations Office at alumni@plu.edu
or (253) 535-7415.
