"Community makes the grade"
I came here as a freshman student-my reasoning being I had friends who'd been attending CLU and when visiting and meeting new people, I felt comfortable and relationships I made drew me in. I stayed all four years, continuing to make new friends and create new relationships. The new relationships- socially, academically, and professionally- are what led me to stay. I am now working at the University and paying for Grad School here as well. Community is what brought me to CLU and community is what makes me want to stay.
I wanted to give back to my Lutheran heritage so I started teaching at CLU and this has been a perfect fit for me.
I enjoy the work I do, I love coming to work and I appreciate seeing familiar faces of my colleagues on campus.
Today, 37 years later, I still remember my arrival and do not regret it.
She ended up being one of my best student workers and would tell all students who got homesick of her adventure here.
