My CLU story begins with a high school senior. As a senior I was confused and had no idea where I wanted to go for college. I visited many "big-name" universities but none ever felt right to me. I went to a small high school and was looking for a college with that same feeling. My high school English teacher told me about CLU. He was an Art major and spoke very highly of the instructors he had.
I figured "Why not? It's close to home."
My family and I arranged a campus tour and came to CLU. I went on the tour but did not really need it. The moment I stepped on campus I knew this was where I belonged. CLU has always been a place where I have felt at home. So much so I stayed for my Bachelor's, teaching credential, Masters and now I work here full-time.
My arrival here was meant to be and God's way of lifting me from a not so great place I was in.
If I get this job, I am going to take it. I can work with Lutherans.
The CLU community opened my awareness, embraced my talents and gave needed meaning to my life.
We have shared so much laughter, joy, and teamwork relating with one another and common triumphs and struggles.
