"CLU provides small class sizes, hands-on experience and great potential. Small classes help to initiate relationships with your professors that provide you with great connections, and assistance throughout your education. The biology department has amazing professors, who care about your education and work to provide you with the best education you could get."

"Cal Lu focuses on it's students. You feel well cared for there by all the faculty and the office. It's personal and because of that you get to take ownership over your education which I think is key. You can't get swallowed up in a few hundred student lecture class. You are in small class sizes with real working professionals who can give you their real life knowledge along with the lessons they are teaching. I pull from my class notes on a weekly basis and I am always going back to my studies to develop information for my work. I never thought I would feel so prepare and well learned and I am and no one can take that a way from me. I have an edge along with my passion which can propel me forward so much more than if I tried to hit the ground and run on my own. My education has given wind underneath my wings to help me fly."

"My college was small, personalized and had a beautiful campus! I had great professors and made lasting friendships there. They have many wonderful resources for finding jobs and internships, and the small class sizes made each class interactive and personal."

  • Degree: Communications
  • Graduation Year: 2001
"I was a transfer student from a Jr. College and completed my final 2 years of my Bachelor's Degree in Communications at CLU; I loved the campus, faculty, small class size and education I received. I am starting my Master's Degree (also) at CLU this Fall (2016); I've been out of school and in the work force and have started a family in the meantime. I will be earning my MS MFT to become a Therapist as I've decided to change careers in order to best serve my family's needs and fulfill my long standing desire to counsel families, couples and individuals (adults and children alike). I have nothing but fond memories of my time at California Lutheran University and would like to add that I am not Lutheran and other than being in the choir during my undergraduate career, in no way participated in any religious activities with the college and never once felt compelled to or judged for not having done so. Educators and students are respectful, kind and thoughtful from my experience at CLU and I'm extremely excited to be going back again at the end of August...and for the next 2 years."
