"Memories of CLU"
In 1967, my father took our family to the Rose Bowl. It was the year that Indiana played USC and O.J. Simpson was a senior. USC won. My father had heard about a Lutheran school where the Dallas Cowboys held their training camp. We made the long drive from Pasadena to the campus and found it (such as it was). I remember a picnic under the trees by the library. My second trip to CLU was last winter for my interview.
We have shared so much laughter, joy, and teamwork relating with one another and common triumphs and struggles.
My favorite part of being employed here at CLU is seeing the students grow from their freshman to sophomore year and beyond.
I was inspired my first year teaching when a student celebrated a milestone.
The moment I stepped on campus I knew this was where I belonged.
