Beautiful campus, great teachers, prestige, small class sizes, small number of students. Wish that there were more on campus activities for graduate students and that PowerPoint wasn't the go-to for all the staff. Some complaints from myself as well as other students and teachers about our online learning management system, Sakai.

I love, love, love PLU. Amazing, challenging, intelligent, and kind professors. Beautiful campus--in all seasons, but especially fall. Great coffee and food options. This place challenged me in every way and gave me more than I could ever imagine!

After losing my scholarship due to getting a multitude of teachers who either can't teach or don't care, I left the university only to be fined additional money FOR leaving.
