California Lutheran University is a private, liberal arts institution in the town of Thousand Oaks, California. With students hailing from more than 49 countries, Cal Lutheran features a diverse enrollment and is a federally designated Hispanic-Serving Institution that offers 37 majors and 39 minors. Although CLU is affiliated with the Lutheran church, it is open to students of all religions. The suburban, 225-acre campus is located midway between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, and 20 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean. Off-site centers are located in Woodland Hills, Westlake Village, Oxnard and Santa Maria, while Pacific Lutheran Theological Seminary is located in Berkeley.
CLU is the friendliest campus you will ever step foot on. All of the students make you feel welcome and want you to be a part of their group. The professors get to know you on a one-on-one basis, you are not just an ID number to them.

I absolutely love Cal Lu! I have been familiar with the campus for the past three years since my brother attended before me, and now that I am living here it as even more enjoyable! Cal Lu feels like home; lots of amazing people. dedicated professors, and living in the Residence Halls is an unforgettable experience.
