Caminos - CLC for College and University Students
Undergraduate and graduate CLCs are thriving at many Jesuit colleges and universities across the USA. These CLCs help students build a community of friends in the Lord, find God in all things, and discern their callings in life.
Typically, college CLCs meet an hour weekly in small groups of 6-10 members to bond, pray, and explore our faith and vocations. We also gather regularly for large group activities: social events, prayer services, faith discussions, and service projects.

CLC USA has developed a program called Caminos to help guide college and university CLCs in the formation process. Camino is a Spanish word that can be translated as “the way, road, journey, path, or pilgrimage.” St. Ignatius of Loyola is often referred to as “the pilgrim” as he recognized himself constantly “on the way”- both internally and externally. Similarly, we find ourselves also on the journey, not yet “arrived” but constantly growing with God and others as we move along the path of life. We choose the plural form of camino because, while we journey together, we all still walk our own paths.
