The class sizes are small enough for each professor to give undivided attention to every student. The campus has a great vibe and is always buzzing with student events. The campus is also vibrant and gorgeous with all of its greenery and trees. If small college campuses with a lot of diversity is for you, then I 100% recommend applying to the University of La Verne!
Review University of La Verne
La Verne is great! Coming in as a freshman I was very intimidated, but there is nothing intimidating about La Verne. The professors are nice and very helpful. The university has a very positive energy, even other students and faculty are nice. Since it's a small school, you don't have to walk much and you get to know your professors and establish a relationship with them. The best part is parking is free and so is tutoring.
The school is definitely not for me. The student body population is smaller than my high school, and over half are commuters, leaving campus life to be practically nonexistant. Tuition and board is a whopping $56,000, and yet there's rarely events, and the events that are put on are rather dull. I mean, the floats for our homecoming parade were pulled in little red wagons! That's how small and... pathetic, they were.
