"Hopes and dreams"
My first day of my undergraduate studies at CLU was a day filled with emotion, nervousness and anxiety. Arriving to CLU was full of emotion because I was the first in my family to attend a university. It was nerve wracking because I was out of my comfort level and I knew that I wasn't only representing myself but my community. Lastly, I was anxious because I wanted to succeed and graduate.
Two years later, I achieved my goal and graduated with a master in Sociology and a minor in Psychology.
This institution gave me so much as a student that I came back to work and represent CLU and its community. I am sure that I will have many more stories to tell about my CLU experience.
Just as I imagined, great people, wonderful atmosphere, love the kids and I drive into the parking lot and feel I’ve driven home.
I was inspired my first year teaching when a student celebrated a milestone.
Everyone that I spoke with and emailed already knew of my arrival and were very friendly towards me and each other.
Working at CLU has transformed my life for the better in so many ways.
