2017-2018 Main Campus Undergraduate Student Handbook


Welcome to Point Loma Nazarene University.

In order to truly understand a university, you must understand its purpose. Point Loma Nazarene University is intentionally committed to faith and learning - the uniting of heart and mind.  Our desire for you is more than accumulating credits toward a degree, but to become individuals who think and live intentionally as Christians in all aspects of your life.

Jesus presents this challenge of the fullness of life in His greatest commandment: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37-38)

A natural outcome of faith and learning joined together is the desire to serve others and to make a difference wherever you are. That’s why our mission commits PLNU to be a university where “minds are engaged and challenged, character is modeled and formed, and service becomes an expression of faith.”

We strive toward this purpose as a community - one that worships, studies, plays, questions, challenges and encourages one another. That’s what PLNU is about. It’s why I love this place, and it’s why I’m so honored to welcome you here and wish you the very best for this academic year.

 

Positively,

Bob Brower, Ph.D.

President
