3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: While the school's housing and dining options making campus living a hassle, the professors and classes are interesting and geared toward the individual.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are plenty of opportunities for on-campus jobs, but internships seem hard to come by. Off campus jobs are near impossible to get without a car, seeing how there is nothing within an easy walking distance from the school.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorm itself is somewhat far from most, if not all, classrooms and dining facilities. The amount that they charge for housing absolutely does not reflect the standard of housing received. This year, we had five people crammed into a traditionally three-four person suite and once the fifth person had moved out, campus services neither came to remove the extra bed/desk/dressers that were taking up valuable space nor did they allow us to move it. There is no place to do laundry on this floor. It was also very difficult to move in/out of the dorms.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: School is not only over-priced but is poorly budgeted and does not use student fees/payments in an appropriate or diligent manner. Fees often go towards areas that are not in need of update/re-budgeting instead of going towards things that would make the school actually worth what it is charging. Housing fees most definitely not equal to the standard of living received and the same goes for meal fees.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professors are always prompt in their responses. They truly know your abilities as a student and professional and understand how to best challenge you and facilitate growth and learning.

Campus Housing: I do not have much experience with campus housing, as I have always lived off-campus. I do know the staff well, and they are friendly and involved.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life on campus

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I completed my Master's program here and I am excited to return to pursue my Doctorate. Faculty are extremely welcoming and helpful. They truly view us as individuals and meet students where they are in their academic and professional journey. Huge emphasis on connecting the theory you study in class to the experiential learning and real world application. I felt entirely prepared to launch my career as a College Counselor after completing this program.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The gym and sports arenas are high quality. They are new, fresh, and clean!

5 College Senior

Academics: There is a ton of variety and a lot of professors to choose from. Some popular study areas are Business Administration, and Psychology.

5 College Senior

Diversity: The campus is extremely diverse and very welcoming. We do not discriminate against anyone here. It's a very safe place to be for any minority.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus as there are always Campus Safety Officers around. We also do drills for real world scenarios such as an on campus shooter. They make sure that we are prepared for anything that could happen. Health Services on campus is also fantastic they can take you in almost all the time and get you the help you need. From rashes to flu symptoms they can help.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: Courses can be challenging if you do not try. Otherwise courses are fairly easy to complete and pass. Professors make sure to help every student and they do get to know you personally. They really do care about our success. The class size is perfect you will never feel as if you are a number in a class. There is also a variety of courses including a course on Dinosaurs.

Overall Experience: We have a great Career Services Center that really cater to making sure students find a job and have a great resume etc. This school has people go to Disney, E!, Universal, Professional Sports Teams, etc. They also have a job fair every year on campus that brings out something like 100+ employers that come to meet with students who are looking for part time jobs, internships, and full time after graduation.

Campus Housing: Some of the best campus housing out there. Compared to most schools Cal Lutheran offers huge dorm rooms that give you a ton of space and ability to decorate however you want. Once you become a junior you have the option of living in the on campus dorms that are apartment style with a full kitchen, living room, and bathroom. The apartment style rooms also have a separate room for each roommate.

Health & Safety: It's great as far as I know, I'm a commuter and I've only been on campus at night once or twice. In the day time I feel completely safe.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It is a pretty great, small, friendly campus. I just don't feel like I belong yet. Commuter students need a special space and a friendly push.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are many opportunities and lots of help.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Seems like there is a lot of sports related things going on at this school, luckily intellectual studies and the arts are also prominent.

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.
