University of La Verne Reviews
I took online, mixed and in-person classes. Despite my initial fear that online classes would be more vigorous and the teachers would be less helpful, this was not the case. Compared to other styles of teaching, online classes are more personally challenging as you are forced, in some cases, to learn without the teacher or students around. However, this does not necessarily mean that these classes are more difficult. They are generally more flexible for those with outside commitments which allows for a diverse life. Additionally, these classes allow for one-on-one teaching through email or video call which can be more helpful to those who struggle with certain concepts or subjects. Online classes were created for greater opportunities!
As of right now, I've been a student at the University of La Verne for at least a year now. So far, I quite in enjoy it. The campus has a rich history as it's been around for over a 100 years, and over those years, the school has made great leaps into cultural and ethical diversity and acceptance. Alongside that, being on campus is quite enjoyable and comfortable as there is usually some sort of event going on that everyone is welcome to enjoy, and you don't feel unsafe due to the proximity of the police station to the school and the many emergency telephones surrounding the campus. La Verne has been great!
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!
