College Life Rating

There are several clubs and organizations to join from volunteering to diversity clubs to clubs who just like to talk about food. All are fun and do several events during the year for others around campus to get involved. Lute life is very active. Those who are in charge of student involvement do a pretty good job at making fun residence hall events and dances to attend over the weekend. Campus safety is very effective at PLU. There are several emergency booths on campus you can reach and contact campus safety for any safety related issue and they are quick to get to where they need to be for emergencies. The school athletics are also great. There are a variety of intramural sports to play or you can join one of the school teams. The PLU football team is great to watch and they have a high success rate.
