SPOTLIGHT: Note from the Dean of Undergraduate Admission

Greetings. My name is Falone Serna and I'm proud to serve as the new Dean of Undergraduate Admission at California Lutheran University. I'm just in my third week at the university but the campus community has already made me feel at home.

I'm fortunate to be starting at such a busy and exciting time of the year. You will be hard pressed to find an institution that will be more invested in your success than we will be. For those who have already decided to commit to being a Regal or Kingsman I hope to get to meet you this fall!

Finals Week
Last week our students took their final exams – the last hurdle before some begin their summer break and others graduate and start their next chapters! Another awesome perk of being a student here during finals week is FREE food. Click here to see what we did to feed students during finals week.

Commencement Ceremonies
Cal Lutheran commencement celebrations have already begun! The Center for Cultural Engagement and Inclusion (CCEI) arranged a celebration for our BIPOC and LGBTQ+ graduates. This celebration took place in our very own Kingsmen Park as our amazing students were celebrated for completing their degrees and making lasting impacts at our university. 

Our Gumby Grad Fest also brought students together for some final memories as they celebrated food trucks, live music, and lawn games. This was the perfect celebration for the day before our Commencement Ceremony on May 14, which took place in our own William Rolland Stadium.
