Off-Campus Housing: I rent a room in a private home in Simi Valley. I'd like to be closer to school, but I can't afford TO prices.

Scholarships: Ihave to keep going back to financial aid over and over to get clarification. Now they're saying I owe the school over $2000, and I may have to drop out for the semester! This happened last fall, too, and I did have to drop out until spring.

I don't know why this keeps happening, and I apply and apply for these scholarships and I never get them. It's very,very depressing. I'm 63. I don't have my whole lifetime to finish school. I've taken care of EVERYBODY all my life. It's my turn, but I can't seem to get Cal Lu to cough up any more grant and scholarship money, even though I have a 3.7 GPA (merit) and I live far below the poverty line (need). I may very well have to transfer to a state school. (where it will take me seventeen years to get the classes I need.) Wow. Opened the flood gates there, didn't I?

Administration: I'm a commuter student, so I'm not too aware of admin situations.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Of course, it depends on what you want. I'm older than most students, so my pallette is a little more developed. I know where to find Morroccan, Russian, Peruvian, Irish, etc. cuisine. I think most of the students go for the usual...pizza, burgers, etc. there are plenty of those around, too. My favorite place for a burger is Hamburger Habit..it's on Moorpark Rd. My fave pizza will always be Topper's, farther down on Moorpark Rd. toward school. Close to school are Mimi's, Outback, and the Fox and Hound, which is British. I wonder ow many students know that's there?

5 College Junior

Majors: Internships are great. My major prepared me for a couple internships, one that I had this past summer and one that I have right now. My internships are paid and they have held me to a high level of responsibility that allows me to really grow and succeed. A lot of the classes here prepare the students well for their future.

4 College Junior

Administration: The administration is fairly good. It's just sometimes it seems like they are out to get the students in trouble when everyone is just trying to have fun.

5 College Junior

Athletics: I love the sports here. The athletics as a whole are fantastic. There is a lot to do here whether you join a team or an intramural team it's always fun. The gym is a state of the art facility, I am always in there. The athleticism of the students here is great.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Health services here is fantastic. They do a lot for the students and are always available. The safety on campus is also great. There are always Campus Safety officers driving around campus to make sure everything is okay.

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.

5 College Junior

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.

5 College Junior

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.

4 College Freshman

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.

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.
