Dear Cal Lutheran Students,

Happy New Year!  We hope you are enjoying a peaceful winter break with family and friends, and that you are safe and well.  As we look to the start of the spring semester, we are closely following the guidelines of the regional stay-at-home order and planning accordingly.  We are optimistic that conditions will improve and look forward to a return to on-campus activities as soon as possible.  Offices on campus are now open from 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday ready to assist with whatever you might need.  Additional important updates include: 

  • Class instruction will remain virtual through the stay-at-home order. As soon as the stay-at-home order is lifted, we will immediately offer outdoor classes as well as indoor lab and studio classes. Ten outdoor classrooms have been created with full technology, lighting, and heating. Once we return to the red tier, all scheduled indoor classes will be offered. Questions about classes can be sent to provost@callutheran.edu.
  • When the stay-at-home order is lifted and classes are taught in-person, students may still elect to attend virtually. All classrooms have been equipped with technology allowing faculty to simultaneously teach to students in the classroom and to those who Zoom in from a remote location.
  • All residential students have been assigned a specific move-in date and time, with new residential students scheduled to arrive January 15 and returning students scheduled to arrive January 18. Students who cannot arrive on their scheduled date/time should plan to arrive on our “flex” move-in day of January 19. Additional move-in details will be emailed this week and if you have any questions please reach out to the Residence Life office by phone 805-493-3220 or email reslife@callutheran.edu.
  • Pearson Library and the Oxnard Center are currently open as an internet-available student study space.
  • The Student Union will open starting on January 19.  Hours will be 8am to 8pm Monday through Friday, and 11am to 8pm Saturday and Sunday.  

While challenges remain, your Cal Lutheran family is here for you and very excited to welcome you back.
