I absolutely loved my university. Diving head first into a masters program outside of this university, makes me miss it more and more each day. I loved every aspect of this small community within La Verne. I truly felt more welcome than at any place or school so far in my life. The faculty provides hands on experience and aid to those that really need it. Professors were mainly just a phone call or text away. Student body was very diverse and the mindset that embodied these individuals was very intuitive and creative. The only thing I would change about this school would be the dining hall food!

Being a part of athletics at the University was the best decision I made. There was always a sense of community throughout campus, but especially among the other athletes. I loved the quaint little campus with a nice little downtown for more food options, and being located in La Verne means you are within an hour of the beach, Disneyland, the mountains and the desert. I felt that I was provided many opportunities with internships and community service and was able to solidify my career choice and take the next step towards it!
The University of La Verne has a wonderful way of making students feel welcomed and comfortable. The faculty and staff are very kind and interested in each students learning experience. Since the school has a much smaller population that most schools, this makes it easier for faculty and staff to become involved in each student's academic life. I have found this to be extremely beneficial because it is always helpful to have someone checking in on you and making sure everything is going well in your academics and maybe even your personal life. Additionally, having a closer connection to professors helps you better understand the material, as professors are easier to approach and discuss confusion with. The school itself is a highly safe environment and feels homely. Overall, the University of La Verne is a phenomenal little school and I highly recommend it.
