"Community makes the grade"
I came here as a freshman student-my reasoning being I had friends who'd been attending CLU and when visiting and meeting new people, I felt comfortable and relationships I made drew me in. I stayed all four years, continuing to make new friends and create new relationships. The new relationships- socially, academically, and professionally- are what led me to stay. I am now working at the University and paying for Grad School here as well. Community is what brought me to CLU and community is what makes me want to stay.
My favorite part of being employed here at CLU is seeing the students grow from their freshman to sophomore year and beyond.
Through my work, I now have the opportunity to give back to the CLU community and treat students, staff, and faculty as I was treated as a graduate student.
My arrival here was meant to be and God's way of lifting me from a not so great place I was in.
The moment I stepped on campus I knew this was where I belonged.
