Life at Cal Lutheran
Around Cal Lutheran
Cal Lutheran is a residential campus with a gym, bookstore, activities, and dining facilities. Los Angeles does not have a very extensive network of public transportation; however, your roommates and classmates will likely have cars. A Trader Joe's grocery store, Rite Aid pharmacy and several restaurants are located within a 25 minute walk from the Residence Halls. Limited bus service is available to areas around Thousand Oaks and MetroLink trains to downtown Los Angeles.
Shopping centers are 10 minutes by car, beaches are 30 minutes by car, and several hiking trails are within walking distance of the campus. Los Angeles is 45 minutes by car, depending on traffic.
Don't miss the Involvement Fair in Kingsmen Park. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about clubs and activities at Cal Lutheran. We will also have several Study Abroad tables if you would like to represent your home university and talk with prospective study abroad students. Please contact the Study Abroad Center to sign up.
The International Student Services office organizes restaurant dinners and outings throughout the semester. Be sure to attend!
