Class Letter

Summer 2013

Dear Class of '79,

CLU continues to grow and improve as the years go by.  Attendance is at a record high, the academic programs continue to earn awards and athletics continues to be a dominate force in NCAA Division III Athletics.  It is a great time to be a Kingsmen or Regal!

I wanted to let you know about a couple of things as we move into the summer:

Growing Campus:
The Caf is being replaced!  A brand new Dining Commons is under construction and will improve the facilities substantially.  The number of undergrad students has almost doubled since we were there…but the caf didn’t get any bigger.  If you get a chance in the Spring of 2014 to swing by and take a look you will be in awe!  You can check out the progress here.  www.callutheran.edu/construction/dining-commons.php

Homecoming & Family Weekend
October 18-20
Mark your Calendar!  People who update their information before July 31st will be entered into a prize draw to win a 2 night stay at the Four Season’s Westlake Village over Homecoming weekend. Information can be updated using the following link www.callutheran.edu/alumni/plugin/update-info.php

The Science Initiative – New 45,000 sqft Facility
CLU’s $30 million science initiative will create a physical symbol of the collaborative, investigative approach in place across all disciplines at the University. The proposed new facility will add 45,000 square feet of space, supporting problem-based learning through more specialized lab and collaborative spaces. It will enable the University to remain competitive in recruiting new students and meeting growing demand among science majors.

The Victory Club
The Victory Club was conceived as a way to bring together everyone who supports Cal Lutheran Athletics. Membership in the Victory Club will enhance the student-athlete experience by offering teams increased travel opportunities, improved facilities, special equipment and the development of a contingency fund for special sports program needs.  For more information on how you can join and support CLU Athletics:  www.clusports.com/victoryclub/
 
Career Services:
Don’t forget…as a CLU Alum you get lifetime access to the Career Services office.  They help with everything from Job Searches, GMAT introductions, LinkedIn classes, resume writing and interview skills.  As time goes by, things like what makes a “good resume” change.  Keep your skills and resume fresh with the help of the Career Services Office.  www.callutheran.edu/career_services/services/

Class Rep
Sadly, the class of 1979 is currently without a Class Representative whose role it would be to keep you all updated of the news in one another’s lives as well as key campus news and dates. If anyone is interested in the role of Class representative for the class of 1979, please contact me, Samantha Putnam, Assistant Director of Alumni & Parent Relations at (805) 493-3883 or sputnam@callutheran.edu. There’s not too much heavy lifting involved in the role, keeping the class updated twice a year with these class letters and helping to rally the troops for reunion years.

Have a great summer and I hope to see you at Homecoming and Family Weekend!
