In my profession, I have heard employers and districts will only hired those from this university because they know when the students graduate, they are prepared for the workforce.

Great school and amazing professors. Excellent opportunities!
The coursework at Cal Lutheran has been engaging, informative, and challenging. Professors are always teaching exciting information, and making sure that we are staying on top of the news happening in our world. I also use the tutoring center and have had a wonderful experience with the tutors.
