A lot of Lutes say “community” is one of the main reasons they chose PLU in the first place–the people and the place just made them feel “at home.” The Twin Cities Alumni Chapter is bringing that same sense of Lute Community to the Twin Cities through its varied events.
“This was our first event with a current student about things that are going on at PLU right now. It was fun to highlight the work of MediaLab but also to highlight an area I’m personally passionate about,” said Emily Barker, coordinator of this event and Chapter Council member.
Bringing the PLU mission of service, leadership and care to the Midwest is one goal of the chapter: By offering events centered around social, service and academic topics, members hope to bring local Lutes together to form a strong community.
The most surprising thing about the Chapter events? The people who show up.
“Our events end up being very cross-generational,” said Barker.
