Cal Lutheran's presence in the Conejo Valley, western Los Angeles County, and Ventura County afforded me the opportunity to drill down on many local topics that I was currently working on, or affecting neighboring agencies. In addition, much like in my undergrad days the university’s small classes, and caring, hands-on professors are easily accessible and willing to meet one-on-one.
