The PLP Weekly

Your one stop for all things PLP!

Speaker Make Up Video(s)

Unfortunately, recording this speaker was not possible. So if we excused you, you can make up the speaker by watching this video or 1 hour of this one instead!


SENIORS.... you know the deal. We still need your photos - if you want to see you and your friends in the slideshow, you have to send in photos! If not, we might take to Facebook.... You've been warned. Please pick a couple pics and send them to

When are service hours due?

....the 22nd! Get 'er done.

Not sure how many hours you've completed? PLP senior Juan Vallejo created an awesome web app to calculate how many hours you've logged on CNU Engage! (*This is not a substitute for logging hours through CNU Engage)

Here's how it works:

  1. Log into to CNU Engage and go to your submitted hours.
  2. Download the Excel document of your hours using the tiny excel icon in the top left corner.
  3. Go to and upload your excel file.
  4. DONE! Bask in the glory of this creation. Thanks so much Juan!

Earth Day Service Opportunity

In recognition and support of Earth Day, The CNU Office of Sustainability and the CNU Grounds Department are partnering to host a clean up event for Lake Maury! Lake Maury is 5 minutes away from CNU and is 165-acre lake owned by the Mariner's Museum. On April 22nd (Earth Day!) from 1-3pm, join us in collecting trash and sorting recycling along the banks of the lake! Sign up here to volunteer - time spent helping with this clean-up can be pre-logged to count towards your PLP hours! Please contact with any questions.

Please note that Student Assembly and the CNU Office of Sustainability are also coordinating Spring Fest Recycling - while an awesome endeavor and we encourage you all to participate, this recycling event does not count towards your service hours!
