I just transfer to University of La Verne and I love the college life so far. I really like the staffs are kind; they want to help you to solve the problems. I love the advisers; they understand it is difficult to study while you are working full time. They try to make your college life as easier as possible by give you helpful advise. Sometimes, they willing to take you to certain department to solve your problem! The professors are knowledgeable, enthusiastic about the subject they teach. They always prepare the class and hand out rich resources. It is not easy to complete the all the assignments, but you actually learn things. I highly recommend the University of La Verne to my friends or who wants to back to school to have a better life. It is worth investment.

I wouldn't have wanted my undergraduate experience anywhere else! Small school, small class sizes, amazing professors who are more than willing to give you their time if needed, generous financial aid packages, and great resources.
The city of La Verne is a cute and quiet little town. Directly inside the campus there is the city police station and fire department, as well as blue safety lights around campus. ULV preaches a lot about diversity, however there is hardly any, whether it be faculty or students. While I consider myself a Democrat, I’ve found many of the professors to be extremely liberal— assignments are based heavily on their views and if you don’t agree you might not get a good grade on it. Student life is very fun with a lot of free food and activities provided almost daily, and many clubs to join. I rate it average because as an expensive private university ($50,000) I personally expected more out of my experience and opportunities given to me. I would only recommend going here if you received a hefty scholarship for ULV. If funds are an issue for you, try Cal Poly Pomona, they are our “sister school”.
