On Wednesday, March 25th PLNU celebrated the completion of 76% of the school year.  More than a benchmark toward summer break, at PLNU tuition covers approximately 76% of a student's education costs.  In fact, never in the history of the university has tuition covered the entire cost of a student's education.


This “tuition freedom”, and that the remaining 24% of the school year, is covered by gifts from alumni and other donors, churches, foundations, corporations, and other revenue sources.  Established in 2008 by the Alumni Association, this year marked the 7th annual "Tuition Freedom Day."  In partnership with Student Senate, the ASB Board of Directors, Sodexo and Bartell Hotels, this celebration aims at increasing awareness of the generous gifts offered to PLNU students, and provides an opportunity for students to express their gratitude.

“Whether or not we realized it, each one of us who attended this university was helped by others who gave to subsidize the cost of our education” says Sheryl Smee, Executive Director of Alumni Relations at PLNU. “This has become an annual event to highlight the difference made in students' lives, through generous alumni support, and the impact we can make in the lives of countless future students through our faithful giving.”

Students came by the ARC after chapel to write a thank you note to our donors and receive the latest TFD t-shirt, designed by PLNU senior, Hannah Siu, and enjoy complimentary refreshments provided by Sodexo.  Visit PLNU’s Flickr to see pictures from Tuition Freedom Day 2014 and watch our 2015 video!

"Thank you so much for your contribution to my education.  I wouldn't be able to be here without you.  Because of you, I'm graduating in May with my BS in dietetics!  Thanks again!" - Emily Strannigan ('15)
