5 College Junior

Majors: The process of getting into the program is easy all you have to do is register or sign up for your emphasis and major. There really are no challenges. You should have a really good GPA to get in though, it's a competitive school.

5 College Junior

Majors: I enjoy being in the Business Program because I get real world experience in classes that offer things such as mock interviews, building linkedin profiles, and editing career documents.

Local Area: The local area is really nice. Thousand Oaks itself is a cute little town that has a lot to offer if you look around. It's also close to Los Angeles and very close to Malibu and Calabasas.

Off-Campus Dining: I love the food around here!! There's really great Mexican food everywhere, and there's an amazing pizza place called pieology. Also Shave It! is great for an ice cream run.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: I've heard from my friends that it's great. I myself do not have financial aid.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's really great living on campus here. First of all the dorms are huge, it's basically apartment size. That's why a lot of the time most people don't move off campus.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: It's a fun environment. Usually parties are held in off campus housing at the sports teams places. Also Taco Tuesday is a big thing here.

Athletics: Not everyone participates in sports or athletics but the ones that do are sure loyal kingsmen/regals.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: You have everything in what you expect living at a dorm, except they may be a little small.

3 College Freshman

Majors: There are a few amount of successful majors at CLU. Many students I have met are either studying the biological sciences or exercise science. There are some English and Humanities majors, but not as many as to believe a liberal arts college might host.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am receiving enough financial aid to help get me by but I still need to pay out of pocket for tuition when grants or loans won't cover it.

3 College Freshman

Local Area: Thousand Oaks is a quiet and affluent neighborhood with plenty of retirees. The surrounding area and cities are quite dead, only entering L.A. County and going to the West SFV or West L.A. will you experience fun.

Administration: The administration performs their job well enough.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Cal Lutheran lacks in the party scene. You have to venture out to L.A. or the West San Fernando Valley for some fun.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Thousand Oaks is an extremely safe community. Nothing to worry about.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off-Campus housing is just expensive really. Unless you can find a roommate(s), you are not likely going to afford rent.

3 College Senior

Majors: totally depends on who your acedemic advisor is.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Compared to other schools ive seen, its super nice!

2 College Senior

Local Area: They dont cater to college students

3 College Senior

Scholarships: They are good, but its still hella expensive

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of different ethnic choices, which I love

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Campus Dining is ok, it's really good for the first couple weeks but then goes downhill. I'm hoping the new cafeteria helps to make it awesome because I'm a vegetarian and I'm really tired of eating quesadillas everyday.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: People are really into athletics, we have different sports houses which are basically our version of frats/sororities, that's where all the big parties are held. Intramural's are a lot of fun too and are usually held during week nights, or sometimes during the day on the weekend.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Cal Lu tries to incorporate diversity as much as it can, but to be honest it's mostly white people. It is a lutheran school, so there are plenty of Lutheran's, but if you aren't Lutheran or even religious it really doesn't matter because there is no required chapel or anything. I do feel like people embrace diversity here though.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There is a wide variety of guys and girls. You usually just find your niche and stay there. There's pretty much a place where everyone fits in - not cliquey like high school, but friend groups are apparent.

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.
