Universitehta ávvuda

Gonagas Harald lei mielde ávvudanlunššas ikte, ja sártnistis maŋŋel lunšša deattuhii son dan man dehálaš oahppu lei dan áigi olbmuide geat fárrejedje Amerihkkái – ja man dehálaš diet universitehta galggai šaddat áiggi mielde:

- Education was a priority for these immigrants. Starting with very little, they first built their farmhouses, then their church, and then a school. Over the decades, this university has grown to become a proud and acclaimed institution— noted for its commitment to diversity, justice and sustainability, in addition to academic excellence. (…) The PLU of today is a testament to the hard work and core values of these first Norwegian immigrants (…).
