New student orientation (NSO) begins Sept 4 and ends Sept 11, with the involvement fair. But why PLU? Why’d you choose it? Whatever the reason might be, we’ve got a few reasons you should be excited you made that decision.

1. Your teachers actually want to help you…

And aren’t total jerks about it.

2. We’re a welcoming, loving community

3. We’ve got a 2:1 ratio… if you like women, you’re welcome

4. Everyone looks fabulous in Black and Gold


5. Campus is beautiful during every season

6. You can have pizza every night

7. We care about the environment

8. “Lutheran” doesn’t mean we don’t party

9. You’ll find your best friends

10. You’ll grow up and learn a lot
