Lulu Santana

Director of Campus Ministry

It is a great joy for me to be a part of the Campus Ministry team!  As Associate Director, I share in some of the administrative and management duties for our department.  With regard to students, I am grateful to accompany students who wish to celebrate the sacraments of initiation in te Roman Catholic Church through the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (R.C.I.A.) or our Confirmation program. I also welcome the opportunity to meet with students as they reflect on questions of faith and life, regardless of religious affiliation. Other programs in which I am involved include: Misas en Espanol (masses in Spanish), the Ignatian Retreat, and the Guadalupe Celebration. 

I am a life-long Californian, originally from Oxnard, CA. I studied at Ventura College and at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo to earn a B.A. in Political Science. In 1997 I graduated from the Graduate Program in Pastoral Ministries at SCU with an M.A. in Catechetics and have been serving ever since as a Campus Minister at SCU. I took a short leave in the spring of 2006 to serve as Acting Director of the Casa de la Solidaridad, SCU's study abroad program in El Salvador. In 2010, I completed the three-year Spiritual Directors' Institute at Mercy Center in Burlingame, CA

Besides my work at SCU, I find great joy in sharing time with family, especially my nieces and nephew! Connecting with friends, reading, exercise, and prayer are some of the activities that help me maintain balance. Whenever I have the time (and money!) I also enjoy traveling. And when the destination includes warm weather, a hammock and mangoes . . . life is very good!
