This page is here to serve as a resource for rescheduled School of Arts and Communication events. Affected departments include Art & Design, Communication (Forensics/Debate), Music, and Theatre & Dance.

The University has put together a helpful page of information containing announcements, policies and procedures, and information about Corona Virus which is accessible at Please check back frequently for updates.

Update 3/17/20: As announced yesterday by PLU President Allan Belton, PLU will remain in remote/distance learning for the remainder of the semester.

Unfortunately, the continuation of distance learning will require us to extend the cancellation of all SOAC events and performances for the remainder of the semester. This is so very disappointing on so many levels and so very sad, especially for our seniors. This same decision is being made at universities and colleges across the country. These are unprecedented times.

We will issue refunds for tickets already purchased. Further announcements will come in the days ahead. For now, stay well, stay healthy, and stay positive. There are no barriers for creativity. Our students need us; we need each other.

Thank you sincerely.
