3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The nightlife is base on the friendships you have.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: All the dorms are suite style. It is not your typical dorm found at other colleges.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Being on the Track & Field Team, athletics to me is quite important! I know that a lot of students participate in Varsity sports and have a great time. The student body is very prominent in supporting our teams. Intramural sports tend to be very fun and competitive, too!

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The campus is very diverse! Students are encouraged to express themselves, political beliefs, religion, sexual orientation, ect., and it is done so in an appropriate and comfortable environment. There are clubs for such things, too!

Party Scene: If you want to go to a party, it is quite possible to find one. You just kind of have to know people. But the parties tend to be very fun and eventful!

3 College Freshman

Academics: Since I am still a Freshman I do not know too much about my major and its courses yet! But I know that Accounting is generally a difficult major. I have heard that the professors are great, though!

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors here are absolutely amazing! Because it is a smaller university, the class sizes are smaller and you get more one-on-one time with the professors. You can really tell that they are passionate about what they are teaching which makes class very enjoyable. Additionally, I feel quite challenged in and out of class- I feel like I am getting the most out of my college experience.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: It is nice to have a car, but if you absolutely need something, it is in walking distance. If you do want to venture outside of Thousand Oaks, a car is pretty necessary.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid is going to be confusing where ever you go. As long as you ask for some help, you will get it (for the most part). Just be persistent and you should get the aid you need or at least a decent amount.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is extremely safe, this is mostly because Thousand Oaks itself is one of the safest cities around. I always feel comfortable walking by my self through campus, day or night. Campus safety is always driving around and there are clearly lit paths at night to keep everyone safe.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: One of the safest cities I have ever been in! I feel so comfortable going to the store, shopping, going for a run, or walking to and from restaurants. In the city itself, it is not the most exciting out there, but it is not the most boring. There is definitely things you can do. It is in driving distance to the beach so that is a plus.
The Thousand Oaks Mall is amazing and there are all kinds of shopping centers really close to campus.

5 College Freshman

Weather: The best weather! It's So-Cal, AKA sunny and beautiful.

4 College Freshman

Technology: There is free WiFi available on campus pretty much everywhere! At the library, you are allowed a great number of free prints during the year/semester. There are up to date computers all over campus, but I highly recommend you bring your own computer, it is just easier.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Because it is a "dry" campus, it may be seen as strict to some people. There are many rules in the dorms such as quiet hours, no drug/alcohol tolerance, ect., however, these rules help keep the environment safe and comfortable for all the residents. From my own experience, I have found these rules and the strictness of the campus to be quite helpful in creating a great college experience.

Drug Safety: Like any college campus there is drug and alcohol use, but it is not out of control. The RA's do a great job of monitoring everything that goes on in the dorms to keep all the residents safe and comfortable. There is minimal peer pressure and you can have a great college experience drug/alcohol free. This campus is extremely safe.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The new buildings for the upperclassmen are great but as for the rest of the students the dorms are average. There are three outdoor pools on campus and many outdoor basketball an volleyball courts.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I would consider other schools definitely, but my reasoning may be totally different than any other person. My reason for not loving this school is because of the basketball experience I have had.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food gets very old very quick but they are in the process of building a new dining hall which will provide more options and an overall better dining experience.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: It would be great if you have a way of getting around. This school is very close to Malibu and Los Angeles, but if you don't have a car it can seem very boring.

3 College Freshman

Technology: There are a lot of computers labs available but bringing your own laptop is much needed.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Some resident assistants are very strict about drinking, drugs, noise level, and visitation in dorms, while others don't follow the rules as closely. It usually just depends which dorm you live in.

2 College Freshman

Transportation: There isn't a form of transportation on campus, that I know of. The campus is small so it's not needed.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I'm still undecided so I can;t really say much on the topic of my major.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Being such a small school, the professors are able to get to know their students. The classroom environment is very intimate and engaging. Class sizes average about 20-30 students. The professors seem to care about their students and offer a good amount of office hours for students who may need the extra help.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Located in the heart of the beautiful, secure town of Thousand Oaks, CLU is an ideal university for those who enjoy a tight-knit community that focuses on academics, diversity, and social connections. The small student population offers students more occasions to bond with fellow Kingsmen and Regals, and to connect with professors who actually know them as individuals, not just as numbers. The semester system enables students to delve into courses of their interest, and the time spent on academic studies helps students discover what they would like to do after their CLU years. With more than 35 majors and 35 minors, and a mix and match of doubling up on both, students are bound to find their perfect area of study. CLU’s close, intimate environment provides students with what other large, public schools can’t: countless opportunities to shine academically and socially, and stand out as individuals without the pressure and competition of a large student body. Clubs, organizations, academic departments, and residence halls are just some of the places in which students can become involved, contribute to their school and local communities, and bond with other students, faculty, and staff.

To briefly break away from the hectic class schedules and loads of coursework, campus events, like Club Lu, afford students with musical-, sports-, art-, and food-related events. From sports games at Dodger Stadium to catching a comedy flick in Kingsmen Park, CLU events bring students together for a night of fun. At any of these events, in class, at the caf, or just hanging out in the dorms, it’s not difficult to see the diversity of students. Coming from a variety of social, economic, ethnic, and political backgrounds, CLU students bring a great understanding and appreciation for other cultures on campus.
