Lute Family Fall 2018

Welcome Family Members - students and parents on Foss field eating


Friday, August 31, 2018 

Family members are those who support our new students, including parents, grandparents, partners, spouses, children, siblings, cousins, friends, mentors, sponsors, etc. You are an integral part of your new student’s transition to PLU. With this in mind, we have created a schedule for you as well.

Family Orientation Schedule

Family Orientation is on Friday, August 31st. The day begins with residential student move-in and commuter student check-in and concludes with a Sustainable Picnic in the evening. Through the day you will have the opportunity to hear from university leaders, engage in conversation with fellow Lute family members, and hear from many offices about resources that will support your students’ success at PLU.
