"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.
Arriving to CLU was full of emotion because I was the first in my family to attend a university.
I wanted to give back to my Lutheran heritage so I started teaching at CLU and this has been a perfect fit for me.
Today, 37 years later, I still remember my arrival and do not regret it.
CLU students are really special. They are among things, brave.
