Lute Family Fall 2019

Welcome Family Members - students and parents on Foss field eating


Family members are anyone who supports 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

The Family Orientation is on Friday, September 6, 2019. The day begins in the morning with helping your students move into their residence halls or “into” the commuter spaces and concludes with the Send-Off Community Picnic during the early evening. Throughout 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.
