    The community here is safe. I have never worried about walking alone to my dorm room at three in the morning. The campus is friendly and there are not that many people who are rude. We all get to know each other because the campus is small enough for everybody to know everybody. I have made the best of friends here and I did not expect any of that to happen.

    So many different activites to particpate in or watch. From theater department shows, to football games, CLU really does take care of their students. Also, because it's a small school, you get the advantage of really knowing a lot of people from all class levels.
