Diversity: Most of the students are in need of financial aid and very few are financially set.

Athletics: It is a third division school but you can see several athletes in class. They are very common. I only went to football games because they had to and what I can say is that the parents play a big role in the stands.

Scholarships: They would randomly make mistakes on my account and that would make me freak out and they would fix it. They were pate on the invoices so you have to stay on top of it. I am currently still fighting one more refund that I need from the school.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: There was no problem when working in groups with others. Guys in general are very courteous and open doors all the time. Girls are the same only they are more focused in class.

Greek Life: I had classmates that were in fraternities but I did not find any difference from other classmates. They just had really close friends in college.

Facilities: Unfortunately I did not live on campus. However, the student center and the library were really nice places. The library really was an environment where you could go study in. The student center had a really nice lounge where you could play video games with friends or just watch tv. On weekends there were several events on campus and so the campus always looked alive.

Athletics: I wish our sports were more important to campus life. We barely got approval this past year for a tail-gate spot in the parking lot, it was a huge success for homecoming but not for most other games. I think it would be awesome to have it feel like a D1 sporting event.

Facilities: There are always events to keep students busy. Tutoring is included in cost of tuition, so students don't have to pay up front. Learning enhancement center and and career services are always eager to help. The library gets pretty crowded during finals but usually there is plenty of space.

Facilities: What sets La Verne apart is the connections students make with faculty and staff, who are experienced working professionals. The small class sizes result in professors knowing students by name. Although the student population is increasing and classrooms have grown, the class sizes are still relatively small, the largest class I've ever had was maybe 35-40 students.

Scholarships: Financial aid office is very helpful and does the best to assist people in a timely manner. I have never had huge issues until this year. My cal grant ran out and I am several thousand short for my last semester. It has been a long process, like pulling teeth, to get things to work in my favor.

Local Atmosphere: La Verne is a beautiful quaint city, not too far from the beaches, theme parks, LA or Hollywood. The city is more for families and elderly. It is also a very tight knit community. A lot of connections between the university and local establishments.

Greek Life: I am a member of the Greek community. For personal reasons i have had to be less involved but for those who are actively participating usually get the most out of it. The real issue is that because we are such a small community, Greek life here is different. Greeks are put into a fishbowl and often times judged and stereo-typed. People will always have assumptions about it, hear rumors and expect it to be like how it is in the movies. Greek life at La Verne is more Philanthropy based.

Campus Strictness: I have also worked with campus safety. Students always complain about them, most students don't appreciate the work they do and forget that they have policies and procedures to abide by. The campus is highly ranked as far as safety, so they are obviously doing things right around here.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I was once an RA so I know the dedication end effort Housing puts in to creating a great experience for the residents. There are policies students don't agree with, like the fact that it is a dry campus meaning students cannot drink in their dorms even if 21+. There are amazing workshops and programs put on by RAs that are very beneficial to students. It is extremely convenient to live on campus especially when the furthest classrooms are maybe a 5 minute walk from the dorms.

Campus Dining: Barbs place is great, made to order, but must pay with cash or Leo Dollars.

Davenport has plenty of options, so long as you find ways to get creative with what is offered.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: People are friendly and helpful. As far as dating, La Verne is like high school. Because we are a very small campus, everyone knows everyone.

Overall Experience: I love University of La Verne and the fact that it is nestled in this quaint city. I am one of the lucky ones who comes from a low-income family so I had great financial aid. If it weren't for the amazing connections and opportunities here, In retrospect I may been better off attending a public institution. The cost to attend here is through the roof but they do try to assist you and provide scholarships if you're a dedicated, hardworking student.

4 College Senior

Majors: The admission process can get confusing, especially for first generation students, however if students remain in constant contact with admissions counselors then the process isn't too bad. The admissions office at La Verne is extremely helpful.

5 College Senior

Majors: The best part about programs at La Verne is that once you get past your GEs, the major courses become very hands on and students receive a very personal, one on one experience. The faculty are experienced professionals in their fields and have many connections. Finding internships and jobs are usually never a problem.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The class availability allows you to find a job easily if necessary.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: There are a variety of majors to study.

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: I didnt not form part but others dod and I know they had meetings. Thats it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: The internship demanded a lot of hours on top of the hours I was already working.
