Originally founded by Norwegian immigrants, Pacific Lutheran University is a 4-year Lutheran liberal arts university in the Seattle metro area. PLU confers undergraduate degrees in 44 academic majors and 54 minors and is one of the only schools in America to offer a minor in Holocaust and Genocide Studies. In addition, PLU is the first university in the nation to offer study abroad programs on all seven continents. Affiliated with the Evangelical Lutheran Church, PLU holds chapel services two days per week.
A small school that doesn't sacrifice academics because of size, with a united campus that embraces and advocates social justice issues and diversity. Great professors that are happy to sit down and have a coffee with you, or to help you out during office hours. Gives numerous scholarships and grants so that it really isn't much more than-if more at all-than most other state or private schools!

PLU is the perfect fit for students who aren't striving for a big, city setting. The personalized education that is offered to the students makes this school well worth going to. The sense of community here is heart-warming and welcoming to all.
