"Small campus community a plus"
After graduating from SDSU, I decided to get a Master's Degree in Counseling. I wanted to stay in San Diego so I applied and was accepted into USD's counseling program.
Unfortunately, a family member became ill and I needed to move home but wasn't sure how I'd continue my education. Fortunately, I also applied to CLU and was admitted, the small campus-vibe couldn't be more than opposite to SDSU. I like it. After completing my degree in Counseling I got a job offer to work at CLU's Upward Bound Program.
My journey back home was difficult and challenging, but my experience with going to school at CLU and working at CLU has been very influential in my life. I enjoy the work I do, I love coming to work and I appreciate seeing familiar faces of my colleagues on campus and being able to say hello and know their name (and they know mine).
We are freed to be servants to the mission of the University and the students who attend CLU
Through my work, I now have the opportunity to give back to the CLU community and treat students, staff, and faculty as I was treated as a graduate student.
CLU has the warmth of a family and a concern for the well being of every member.
Tom tried something new- a business class. He liked it and did well.
