College Senior

Health & Safety: I have never dealt or known about any issues of sexual assault.

1 College Senior

Party Scene: There are rarely any parties in the area and if you want to go out there are many clubs in LA which are an hour away.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Every food option off-campus is driving distance which can be costly. There are only 5 restaurants that take 5 minutes to drive to while everything else is further away.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Being a private school, tuition is pricy. I wish I did not need as much loans as I took out, but it was well worth it.

Athletics: Athletics do not get much mention outside of their own department. Intramural sports are huge. I ran the programs for 2 years and the membership was very high. All students love the recreational sports. Almost half of the student body competes in varsity sports.

Off-Campus Housing: I loved living off campus. The cost is very affordable and the locations are extremely close to campus.

Health & Safety: Thousand Oaks is one of the safest places to live in the nation. But the nurses office is expensive if you don't have student insurance and can be awkward.

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.
