2 College Freshman

Party Scene: there really isn't a party scene. Always shut down and just not fun

Campus Food: the minimal options / healthy choices

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: it is nice but nothing out of the ordinary

4 College Freshman

Local Area: It is 30 minutes from Ventura and Malibu so there is a lot of beach opportunity, but also an hour from downtown LA which is also super cool! You just have to be down for the drive.

Administration: The RA's are super strict about drugs and alcohol, especially drugs. It's a dry campus so it's not allowed, but everyone kind of gets around it.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: A lot of people live off campus in various different types of housing. There are condos and apartments within a mile from campus but there are also a lot of housing developments that groups of students can go in for, which a lot do.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: People get really into the athletics here because a lot of students are apart of varsity sports or attend the games.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Like all schools you are going to have some crazies, but because the classes are so small and intimate, I have had such a good experience with almost all of my professors.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: Almost everyone at CalLu get's scholarship because they are really giving when it comes to merit scholarships.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: SO MUCH FRICKIN SPACE.

From the freshman dorms to the upperclassman housing, they are more like apartments than dorms.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The commons just opened this year so they are always changing the food up. I dont have to eat the same thing twice unless I want to.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Thousand Oaks is the 4th safest city in the United States and you can definitely tell at CLU. I leave the library at midnight and trek back to my dorm alone and never feel like it is unsafe. Plus, campus security is always roaming around just in case.

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.
