3 College Sophomore

Athletics: While it may only be a division 3 school, PLU has some lack luster athletic facilities that need immediate renovation. The gyms themselves look as though they are 50 - 60 years old.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Everyone supports student athletes and sports are respected on campus but they are not a focal point of the school. Students enjoy attending games but not everyone does. Intramurals have more of a campus wide pull for the students. I think that it's really important for everyone to feel involved here.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Let's be honest, a DIII Lutheran School isn't going to be a mecca for sports but it still has it's relative success and legacy here. It's part of the charm and the familial feeling at school to support the awesome athletes that attend and also those who play, but it's never going to have the fanfare of a DI school. Overall, it's pretty sweet.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I didn't come here for the athletics because my heart is in music, but I think we have very talented athletes here, especially in baseball, softball and swimming. School spirit is always up for the sports teams as far as I can tell!

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym is considerably small and can easily become too full for athletes to get an efficient workout in. The playing fields are all high quality and the teams have the proper athletic uniforms and clothing they need. School spirit and fan attendance is what you would expect at a Division III school.
