5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Pacific Lutheran University, my current school, has been the best decision I believe I have ever made. The students are inclusive and always willing to meet new people and help out the new comers. I've been able to gain job experience in both my field of study and in other fields that will help me find good, steady jobs in my future. I have made life long friends and connections through PLU's wonderful social and educational system.

Scholarships: The financial aid process was extremely nerve-racking. I had a hard time finding the money needed to attend this school, especially with the steep tuition prices. I found myself taking out multiple loans and would liked to have had a better opportunity at receiving scholarships, not based on the income of my parents. Financial aid at this school is ultimately based on how much money your parents make in a year. If your parents make less money, you are more likely to get a better scholarship than most, but if your parents make a large amount of money, you are more likely to get less money than most. In my opinion, the prices I pay for college should not be dependent on my parents income.

Campus Food: While the food in Kelley Cafe and Old Main Market are amazing, the Commons lacks in variety, which is slightly disappointing. I wish that the Commons would provide more variety, because eating the same meal roughly three times a week gets fairly old. The best places to go would be Tahoma, OMM (Old Main Market), and Kelley Cafe. The baristas are always friendly and seem to enjoy their work. The only complaint that I would have would be to allow the students to carry their dining dollars over into their next year or rather refund the students the remaining money on their account.
