About CLU

CLU Making History Project

The history and accomplishments of California Lutheran University are now visible throughout campus because of the generosity of several donors. The CLU Making History Project consists of seven storyboards placed in strategic locations on campus. They tell the story of the University's founding, its growth, and some of the special people who contributed to its success.
