The new improved Nesvig

Next time you’re on campus, check out the newly remodeled Nesvig Alumni Center, across Park Avenue from Anderson University Center.

The spacious brick structure, built into the hillside that slopes toward Lower Campus, was purchased by PLU as a residence for the president in 1961. But it has housed the alumni offices and a variety of other university functions since the 1970s.

This spring, the newly remodeled center opened its doors to Alumni & Student Connections, the Wild Hope Center for Vocation and the office of Congregational Engagement.

Upstairs, you’ll find a great room with comfortable seating — complete with a cozy fireplace — suitable for social gatherings and meetings. Downstairs conference and training rooms are equipped with computers and video screens where students, alumni and potential employers can connect through video conferencing or in person.

The space was designed with alumni and students in mind. Make it your own.
