"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.
Today, 37 years later, I still remember my arrival and do not regret it.
I’ve been very impressed by the CLU community
The moment I stepped on campus I knew this was where I belonged.
I didn't know that I was going to get the opportunity to meet students from all over the world.
