Alumni News

Thank you to all the alumni who came home to visit campus Nov. 2-4

In addition to annual events like the football game and PLU on Tap, there were more events than ever that brought alumni and students together over the weekend.

Students look to alumni as mentors and value the knowledge and experiences alumni share about their time on campus and their life after PLU.

Alumni find value in being a resource to students, as well as staying connected to the PLU community.

Homecoming 2019 | Oct. 4-6

Connection Events 2019

One of the most powerful ways alumni can support PLU is by identifying and recruiting new Lutes. Sixty percent of the seniors who attended a Connection Event last year enrolled and started at PLU this fall. We invite you to attend a Connection Event in your area this spring to share your experience and vocational journey with high school students and increase their interest in PLU. Acting President Allan Belton and Provost Joanna Gregson will also share current news from campus. Come enjoy the food and fellowship.
