Congratulations to our incoming PLNU students and their families! 

Please join us for a valuable and fun Parent Connection social, designed just for you and hosted in the home of a fellow PLNU parent.  Network with other new PLNU parents, gather wisdom from those who have gone before, and get your personal questions answered by current parents and PLNU staff.

Our goal is to help you feel ready and excited about your student and their coming experiences at PLNU, along with a chance to build new relationships with other parents prior to your on-campus events of NSO.  Space is limited, so please RSVP quickly to one of the three dates and locations as we all share in this wonderful extended Christian community that we call PLNU Parent Connection.

Event Dates:

August 8 |  Saturday, 9-11 am (Scripps Ranch, CA)

August 15 |  Saturday, 9-11 am (Phoenix, AZ)

August 18 |  Tuesday, 6:30-8:30 pm (Rancho Santa Fe, CA)

We look forward to seeing you there!
 

 

Registration is now closed.

PLNU alums Alex Rodrick (B.A., Music, 2011) and Christen Horne Ryerson (B.A., Music, 2012) continue PLNU Voice's stream of accolades, winning large cash awards in the 2015 annual competition of the Musical Merit Foundation of Greater San Diego. The competition final round awards were announced in a concert on Sunday afternoon May 30th at First United Methodist Church in Mission Valley.  Founded in 1945, Musical Merit Foundation of Greater San Diego (www.musicalmerit.org) now awards over $85,000 in prize money every year to young musicians in vocal and instrumental music who live in or attend college in the greater San Diego region.  Rodrick, a mezzo-soprano, receives a $7,000 cash prize; soprano Ryerson receives a cash award of $5,000. Both young vocalists, who studied while at PLNU with Dr. J. Craig Johnson, are pursuing professional careers as opera singers.

Since 2004 PLNU has been participating in the City of San Diego’s recycling program.  Through the work of everyone across the campus we were fortunate enough to once again win the Director’s Recycling Award.  This is our ninth award from the City of San Diego Environmental Services Department.  Our recycling program includes single-stream recycle bins; electronic, battery, and ink recycling; donations;  on-campus composting for dorms and offices and off-campus composting for Sodexo food waste; shred recycling; as well as carpet and construction recycling.  Awards such as these are only possibly through the participation of our campus community so thank you for your support and continued sustainability efforts.  We look forward to continuing to  our sustainability initiatives together.

SustainPLNU has just had a new DERO bike service station installed on campus.  There is already a bike pump station outside of Ryan library, however this new bike service station is more than just a pump.  The new service station located at the bike racks on the north side of Cooper also includes several tool items and a QR Code that will direct users to a bike manual allowing PLNU community members to make minor bike repairs on campus.
