CLUtheran Overnight

April 18-19, 2020

March 16, 2020
In order to minimize the risk of coronavirus (COVID-19) within the Cal Lutheran community and surrounding area, we have canceled all campus events (including the CLUtheran overnight), visits, and tours. As a result, our campus is closed to visitors until further notice.

Admitted students will be hearing from their admission counselors over the coming weeks, and we will be making every opportunity to get all of your questions about life at Cal Lutheran answered.

If you have any immediate questions, please do not hesitate to text, email, or call your admission counselor. You can find their contact information here.


The CLUtheran Overnight Experience program is offered during our Admitted Student Day event in April. Admitted, high school students, who identify as Lutheran, are invited to visit and learn more about spiritual life on campus.

Participants will learn what life is like as a Cal Lutheran student by staying overnight on campus, making connections with members of our Campus Ministry staff and student leaders, meeting other admitted students considering CLU, and interacting with current students who make our campus their home.

Students should plan to check in for the event around 4 p.m. following the conclusion of Admitted Student Day on Saturday. While families are encouraged to join their student for Admitted Student Day, the CLUtheran Overnight Experience is intended for admitted students only.

Family members are invited to meet up with their students on Sunday morning for the worship service.  The event will conclude around 12:00pm on Sunday.

This is an invitation only program. If you would like to learn more about this program, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission at or call (805) 493-3135, or 1-877-CLU-FOR-U, Toll Free.
