"First impressions"

Anonymous

My CLU story begins with a high school senior. As a senior I was confused and had no idea where I wanted to go for college. I visited many "big-name" universities but none ever felt right to me. I went to a small high school and was looking for a college with that same feeling. My high school English teacher told me about CLU. He was an Art major and spoke very highly of the instructors he had.

I figured "Why not? It's close to home."

My family and I arranged a campus tour and came to CLU. I went on the tour but did not really need it. The moment I stepped on campus I knew this was where I belonged. CLU has always been a place where I have felt at home. So much so I stayed for my Bachelor's, teaching credential, Masters and now I work here full-time.
