University of La Verne is an amazing school. It is a small private school but allows every student to feel connected to the staff. The class sizes are view small which allow professor to really get to know the student. The campus is extremely safe. We have 24 hour security around campus and also have the city's police and fire department within the campus grounds. So far my experience as a freshmen has been amazing. I have made so many friends and been to many social events our Greek life has hosted while still maintaining a high GPA. Here at the University their main objective is for every student to have a co-curricular education. I truly hope you consider visiting and applying to my college. GO LEOS!!!!!
I personally love The University Of La Verne. It is a very welcoming and comforting school for anyone. I love how diverse it is all around and how great the professors truly are.
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.
I like that the school is small, but I would like there to be more opportunities to get involved. Additionally, I wished not all club meetings would start at 10 p.m. because is difficult for people who do commute to attend.
The University of La Verne is great for people who are looking to become very involved on campus. Since it is a small school, it is very easy to become familiar with other students, join organizations and even develop relationships with faculty. I appreciate that the University strives to make us responsible global citizens who are aware and how they include voluntary service work as part of the curriculum. However, Greek life is extremely popular at this University. Considering that it is so small, it feels like a majority of the student body is also Greek and monopolizing in leadership positions as well as participating in other organizations. If you do not particularly like or would like to join Greek life, this might not be the school for you because it is such a central part of campus and student life.
La Verne has some of the most "real-world" experienced professors I have ever came across . The courses are demanding (which I like) and you walk away feeling like you've learned something
Attending the University of La Verne has been such a life changing experience. What I love most about this institution is the size of the class. Currently, my class sizes range from 9-28 students. This, to me, is incredible because I get to actually communicate with my professors, they all know me by name. It's a wonderful school.
University of La Verne is a great college campus. I feel welcomed on the campus and I've been able to have a fresh start and make new friends.
I am applying for Bachelor's degree through Campus Accelerated Program for Adults. This is a great program for people who have full time job and want to invest in education. The First, Campus Accelerated Program for Adults AKA CAPA has flexible schedule. CAPA has mornings, evenings, weekends, Sunday and online courses. Secondly, staffs are very helpful. Especially Tim, he makes things easier for students. He helped me through the college admissions process. I met other college's counselors, but he has the most helpful and passionate one. That's why gave University of La Verne full rate.
I attend an off site cohort. The experience is diffetent from the main campus.
The professors I have had take an interest in what they teach and are extremely helpful.
There are a lot of options to reach out for career prospects, but i have not used any yet.

There is low campus crime and I feel generally safe waking alone and have not encountered any problems.
I do not live on campus, however the more money spent on dorming, the nicer the buildings are.

There are different Greek groups and they are approachable when wanting to join. It is not as big at the school compared to others.
Sports are not as big in the school but are important to the students in them. However, there is fan support, but not as much as there could be.
The school is great when it comes to education. It is easy to ask for help and learn from all of the professors.
I feel really safe on campus, there has not been a moment at which I have not felt safe. The area has a very low crime rate and I have no problem walking around in the middle of the night.
My experience with living on campus was weird. I had a total of two roommates and they were both weirdos. My first roommate was awkward all the time and eventually got kicked out for illegal activity. My second roommate would spend all day everyday in the room staring at me. We lived together for 4 months and he only spoke to me once and ignored me when I engaged in conversation. The dorm that we lived in was scorching hot in the beginning of the semester and freezing in the winter time due to the lack of air conditioning and heating.

I don't have any interest in Greek Life because it does not appeal to me. I have no thoughts or feelings about them because I do not hear much about them. Greek Life at my school is pretty much just paying for new friends, and is redundant because everybody knows everybody due to how small the school is.
