Start Your PLU Experience Now
Students who participate in LUTE Welcome orientation are more successful at PLU and able to better navigate campus. LUTE Welcome orientation will include 3 steps to orienting yourself to PLU to be set up for success (learn more below!). After completing these steps as part of our LUTE Welcome experiences, you’ll know what to expect on your first day of classes, learn about clubs and organizations you can join, and make lifelong friendships.
As students at PLU, we know how important it is to learn about how you will organize your life as a student and have created a LUTE Welcome To-Do’s Checklist with videos, tips, and links to campus resources that will support your transition to PLU.
Attend LUTE Welcome to meet fellow new students and returning students who will provide tips from their experience. You will get to meet our outstanding faculty and staff, and get a chance to explore campus!

- Health & Wellbeing information during LUTE Welcome:
- PLU requires that all students and employees be fully vaccinated for the COVID-19 virus unless they have submitted documentation for a vaccination exemption and have been formally approved. Details for the student process can be found on the Health Center‘s PLU COVID-19 Vaccine Policy for Students web page.
- Students coming to campus for the first time or returning after an absence are strongly encouraged to participate in COVID PCR or antigen (rapid) testing prior to arrival. Family members and supporters who will be assisting with the move in process and/or participating in Lute Welcome New Student Orientation are similarly strongly encouraged to test prior to coming to campus. If not feeling well, students or family members should delay their travel to campus until symptom free for 24 hours.
- Mask wearing is optional, but supported based on individuals’ comfort, especially when indoors and when larger groups of people will be present for an extended period of time.
- See here for additional PLU Community Updates regarding Public Health Concerns.
