Associated Students of Pacific Lutheran University is the elected voice of the student population.  The organization’s goal is to inspire and represent the PLU community through living out the mission statement of voice, vision, and action.

ASPLU seeks to positively impact PLU through work done by the Senate and planning events throughout the year.

As the only voting members of the organization, the Senate encourages students to offer feedback about PLU and represents their voices during Senate meetings and the legislation process.

Past Senate projects include passing a joint resolution with Resident Hall Association in support of gender neutral housing, installing blue emergency phone stands throughout campus, and initiating Take Back the Tap – a sustainability movement to encourage using reusable water bottles.

ASPLU also works to plan events each year such as Homecoming,  LollaPLUza – the major spring music festival -and teams up with the Diversity Center for Diversity Week.

The opportunity to volunteer on a planning committee is always available and welcome.

Visit plu.edu/asplu and fill out a questionnaire to get involved.

If interested in running for Senate, there are a number of open positions and there will be an interest meeting in the Anderson University Center room 133 Sept. 16, 2013 at 7 p.m.

Elections will be held Sept. 26 and 27. All are welcome and encouraged to stop by.
