Happy Summer, Class of 1986!
I hope all is well for you & your families! It's great to see your lives unfold through Facebook, it makes me want to kick into gear for out next reunion! No, it's not for a few years, but we can always visit the campus for Homecoming. Make sure you visit our Alumni Association Facebook Page and of course, the one specific to class of 1986. I try to keep up on all the happenings around campus & post them there for all. The new cafeteria/student center construction is going full steam ahead. If you haven't seen the campus recently, you should! Finally, congrats to those that have recent HS grads that will be joining the CLU family in the Fall.
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.
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

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