"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).
Today, 37 years later, I still remember my arrival and do not regret it.
I didn't know that I was going to get the opportunity to meet students from all over the world.
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.
