4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Never heard of or witnessed and sexual assault cases on campus.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Never lived on campus but classmates state its average.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I live close to home, I did not have to live on campus as a freshman, I met my best friend in a business class, got to keep my high school job, friends from high school attend the same university. In all honesty the only reason I chose this school was for the scholarship. I would pick the same school all over again just because I got to stay with my boyfriend who I met a month before my freshman year started (I'm still with him). If we weren't still together, and I wasn't offered a scholarship, than I would have gone to Davis...Or saved money and gone to Moorpark College for two years and then transferred.

Campus Food: Centrum has good tater-tots. Huge variety and good quantity for the price. I do not trust the sushi but besides that, dig in!

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There is a mall nearby with a plethora of dining options. Lazy Dog, Red Robin, Taco Bell, Whole Foods, Lassens, and any other fast food chain you could think of. Coffee options galore! We also have In-N-Out--'nuff said.

4 College Senior

Majors: There was really no process into picking my program besides filling out a form and having my advisor sign it. The registar's office is more helpful than my advisor...visit your academic counselor frequently.

2 College Senior

Majors: Teacher's are poor in the teaching methods, when we give reviews there is rarely a change from the professors, most of them are full of themselves, teachers rarely teach. I know of three professors in the business program who actually teach and even though they are difficult, it is worth the work. Econ classes are the worst, very little direction (especially Coman) . The business building is old and small. Could use a renovation...

3 College Senior

Administration: CLU focuses more on parking than drug use. I have never been informed in any way about the drug policies, but I am always emailed about not parking in residential areas. You get a ticket for parking in a residential street. I have to pay 36k a year to go to an okay school and then also be punished for the lack of parking. Instead of making an outdoor dining area, they could have made a parking structure...learn from CSUN and CSUN, please!

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: Small school, conservative, nonexistent campus life, dry school, safe, suburbs, near Los Angeles, close to beach, small classes, disgraceful library, new gym and stadium

3 College Senior

Campus Quality: dry campus, no frats or sororities, everything is closed by 10 except for bars, in the suburbs, near LA and beach, athletic center is new and lovely, library is old and small (CSUCI which is about 15 minutes away has a marvelous library), green space is gloomy, campus activities are small and few

3 College Senior

Diversity: It is a very conservative school. Reason might be that it is a Lutheran university.

Diversity: needs less conservative, rich, entitled jerks

1 College Sophomore

Administration: Ruins everything, and you have to pay ridiculous fees for everything

4 Recent Alumnus

Weather: Weather is great in the surrounding area! Can't beat Southern California weather.

3 Recent Alumnus

Drug Safety: I have never encountered an issue with it, so it's not very prominent.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Not too many options for late night, but there are enough dining options.

4 Recent Alumnus

Technology: Campus is small, and the computer lab is accessible from anywhere.

4 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Plenty of options in, and around the campus, provides flexibility.

4 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Downtown Los Angeles is about an hour away depending on which campus you are at.

4 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: I feel incredibly safe on campus. I can't say much about the health portion, as I've never used their services.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Academics at Cal Lutheran are great! Faculty are involved, and the courses are engaging.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Athletics at the school are great! Tons of fun to attend events.

4 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: Nice college town. Away from the city

1 College Freshman

Administration: i feel as though this is a small dictatorship and we have limited freedom. a good thing though, we do not have a curfew. thank god!

2 College Freshman

Transportation: there is minimal public transportation to get around to other areas. everything is a pretty far walk if you do not have a car.

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.
