"Beautiful afternoon isn’t it?"
I had just sat down on a couch in the Student Union Building. A gentleman was peering at me over the Los Angeles Times.
"Yes?" I said anxiously. I was waiting for an interview with Bill Rosser, VP of Student Affairs and couldn't help but be nervous. The gentleman offered some of his sandwich and some conversation about the CLU campus. I felt at ease and very comfortable. I was also glad to hear a bit more about the campus before my interview.
After a few minutes, he packed up his lunch and introduced himself as Bill Rosser! From that day on, I have felt CLU is a campus that is comfortable and relaxed. Just like Bill, CLU cares about people over titles, students over tuition, and the stories that are created.
I never had much experience working with international students and am really enjoying learning so many different things about other countries.
Community is what brought me to CLU and community is what makes me want to stay.
If I get this job, I am going to take it. I can work with Lutherans.
My arrival here was meant to be and God's way of lifting me from a not so great place I was in.
