"Inspired by advisor"


I came to CLU as a graduate student in the counseling and guidance program. I had recently graduated from a UC school which was large and I hadn't felt very integrated with the community. I didn't find the same problem here. My academic advisor was one of the first people I met, her name was Lisa Buono. Lisa also taught in the program I was taking and I can say without a doubt or hesitation that she was the most supportive and best teacher and counselor I had ever had in my life. She kept my interest in counseling while igniting my passion for knowledge and desire to become a professor one day. I can only hope that one day I can have the same profound effect on other students.

I think this is one of CLU’s strong points- there were always faculty members encouraging us to press on.
