The University is becoming well known both locally and internationally, as this past summer three separate organizations sent students to live in student housing and study on campus.
The Math/Science Upward Bound Program based at California Lutheran University (CLU) partnered with the Johns Hopkins School of Engineering to send 52 students from around the country as well as from Guam and Micronesia for five-weeks of living and studying in June and July.
The goal of the federally-funded program is to provide meaningful experiences for low income, first-generation college-bound high school students. During their stay, the students took classes from local high school teachers as well as CSUCI and CLU professors.
Another organization, FLS (Foreign Language School) International, arranged for approximately 50 students from Italy, France, Spain, and Asia to take English and film technique classes on campus, with field trips to major Hollywood studios.
Sixty-five young people from around the state, Washington, and Idaho attended two one-week resident soccer camps, sponsored by Premiere Soccer Camp by the Ocean. The students stayed at Anacapa Village and participated in training and competitive events throughout their stay.
All of these groups reported that the students enjoyed living in CSUCI student housing, as well as experiencing campus life.
