The Cal Lutheran Experience

Computer Science

The Computer Science program does a good job at focusing on generalized concepts of programming rather than a specific language. We’re taught to think in an object-oriented way, it’s really important to break things down and create small pieces of a large program. To write a program to work efficiently and accurately, you need good planning skills. The emphasis on good programming practices in this program is one of the biggest things that sets us up for success in both our classes and future careers.

Sports Management

I wanted to be a Sports Management major because I have always loved watching and playing sports. My whole life has revolved around sports, whether it was watching my brother play or when I played. I played softball for 7 years and stopped after high school because I wanted to focus on school and my future. I was able to coach for two years and learned about the behind the scenes of softball. This motivated me to want to learn more about sports management and the different positions behind it. When I graduate, I want to work with Major League baseball, whether it is with a specific team or just MLB in general.
