The Academic Rotation and Co-Curricular Rotation Sessions are required for all new students. Attendance will be taken at these events, and those not in attendance, will be placed on a hold and will need to complete make-up assignments.

Orientation sessions are intentionally designed for new students, and family members are welcome to attend any portion of the day. New students will need PLU ID card (LuteCard) to attend the orientation, and the Concierge Desk will be open in the morning on February 3, 2015.
