3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone seems to be very Democratic and liberal, and you can be looked down on if you are not.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I did not enjoy the student life on campus and this is part of the reason why I am not living on campus next year.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I know PLU has good academic programs and great credibility.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school does not allow people to live off campus till they are 20 which is ridiculous. They do not help with off campus housing.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I have had good professors that all grade fairly, and we have great study away options.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: In my major, nursing, it is really tough but i love it.

2 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: PLU is surrounded by a poor area of Tacoma called Parkland. I never feel safe to walk around off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm glad to be in my program but it was tough to get into.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: I have not had an internship, and I am doing nursing so I don't plan on having one.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: When I first applied I got two scholarships, then last minute right before I was going to school they took away one of my scholarships when my FASA was updated. I wish I still had that scholarship and I wish I was granted more financial aid.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We only really have fast food restaurants around us and a few good restaurants.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: My school does not have a greek life, but I wish it did.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Many of the guys and girls are really smart and sort of hipster.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Food was not too bad. However I wish that we had more options of places to eat instead of only one dining hall.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The campus security is very strict with things such as alcohol and drugs, but when it comes to being loud or protecting our safety they are less strict.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Campus housing is fairly decent. I thought it would be a decent sized room and I was right. Space isn't really an issue unless you bring a massive amount of stuff so it's relatively comfortable.

4 College Freshman

Computers: I was surprised at how quickly the network at college responded since it is serving so many students. It works out very well throughout the year and I haven't had any complaints about it at all.

5 College Freshman

Weather: I really enjoy the rain, so living in Western Washington has been great for me. I love it when it rains so I'm never bothered by the weather around campus.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone seems really interested in the performance of the varsity sports which is great for the teams to have such support. Intramurals are still very fun and enjoyable for students both in and out of varsity

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The acceptance rate at PLU is approximately 70% which is not too bad honestly. It has a more female dominated demographic but it isn't really that noticeable. Everyone seems to get along to a degree even coming from different backgrounds

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone I meet seems to be very friendly and open. It is really easy to get to know people that live near or share classes with oneself. There are plenty of club for like-minded students and they all seem very enjoyable. A lot of interests involve business and Norwegian studies as well as pre-med.

3 College Freshman

Parking: It's alright overall. I've heard the cost isn't that bad for a permit and that spots on campus are usually not hard to find. Finding close ones may be a bit difficult if you arrive late but that is to be expected. I live on campus though so it isn't an issue for me either way.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The security walks through buildings at standard intervals. The campus safety is easily reachable at all hours and we are notified by them in case of any serious crimes nearby. They seem to be very effective and I generally feel safe around the school

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel safe at all times on campus

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Near, good break from campus food
