California Lutheran University is unique mainly because of its size.

I think part of has to deal with CLU being a small school where you see the same person maybe three times a day; opposed to a bigger school where you meet someone and may not see them again till the next week.


Being from Washington state, going to a school in California was a huge leap for me, being so far away from home. However looking back, I am so happy with my decision.

CLU is unique because it is a Lutheran University that offers a bio-engineering degree. Most Lutheran Universities do not offer science majors.
