Spring Visit Day 2015

On April 10th PLU again invited local international students from several community college in the area to visit campus and our current international students. This gave them the chance to see the campus for themselves, experience a real day as a student, meet students from their home country and even spend a night in the dorms.

This year we had ten students join us from Green River College, Shoreline and Tacoma Community College. They received a campus tour and had a dinner social with current international students where they were given the opportunity to ask the important questions:

"What are classes like? How are the professors? What is there for students to do around campus? Should I live in a dorm or off campus?"

The students also went to the annual Dance Ensemble, which showcases talented PLU student dancers and choreographers, the PLU dance team, and professional choreography. Students of all technical dance levels can participate and it is a lot of fun! This is a huge campus event that everyone usually attends!

Some students chose to spend the night with hosts on campus, meaning that they could experience what PLU dorms are like and breakfast on campus. This could be a valuable experience when applying for housing to help decide which resident hall they would like to live in. 

All of the student volunteers and admissions interns had a great time with the visiting students and we hope to one day see them on campus! If you are interested in a campus visit you can request a visit here! See you on campus!
