"Working at CLU"
Some of my favorite CLU stories relate to the camaraderie I have shared with my colleagues in the Offices of Undergrad Admission and Financial Aid. Working in close quarters, cubicles better fit for lab mice, we have shared so much laughter, joy, and teamwork relating with one another and common triumphs and struggles. From office potlucks to sharing adolescent admission application errors, welcoming new colleagues and bidding others goodbye, making team efforts to ward off demanding mothers (CLU Staff of 25 vs. one persistent mother) and agonizing over difficult admission decisions, our team functions truly as a team unit. I have loved and hated this experience of sharing so much with a group of people as diverse and united in purpose as our Office of Undergraduate Enrollment.
I remember a picnic under the trees by the library.
From that day on, I have felt CLU is a campus that is comfortable and relaxed.
Arriving to CLU was full of emotion because I was the first in my family to attend a university.
Community is what brought me to CLU and community is what makes me want to stay.
