For the third year in a row, Woodbrook Middle School seventh graders visited Pacific Lutheran University (PLU) to learn more about the college admissions process.

“Visiting PLU gives our seventh graders exposure to the look and feel of a college campus, and helps them to visualize themselves as college students, said Woodbrook counselor Melissa Juvik.
“It helps to reinforce district curriculum on college readiness and the application and admissions process,” she added.

The students explored the campus by completing a scavenger hunt, locating landmarks and points of interest such as the Martin Luther bust, the spinning statues, the sand sculpture, the robotic hand and Mary Baker Russell Music Hall.

PLU offers the 253 PLU Bound scholarships for students who attend a high school in the 253 area code or Pierce County, are College Bound-eligible and have a 3.7 or better weighted cumulative GPA. Students who qualify are awarded full tuition for their four years at PLU through a combination of federal, state, PLU grants and scholarships, and the College Bound Scholarship.
