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.

The school is definitely not for me. The student body population is smaller than my high school, and over half are commuters, leaving campus life to be practically nonexistant. Tuition and board is a whopping $56,000, and yet there's rarely events, and the events that are put on are rather dull. I mean, the floats for our homecoming parade were pulled in little red wagons! That's how small and... pathetic, they were.

Just arriving at the University of La Verne shows you how quaint and beautiful the campus itself is. It's covered in green with big trees, little gardens, flowers, and bright healthy grass. The buildings look like little cottages that look like they came out of "Snow White". It just makes you feel like you're at home.

The staff and administration really do care about you and your education. The academic advising for your major is outstanding. With about an hour of one on one advising, you learn everything about the classes you need to take and have taken. You are taught about different extracurriculars there are offered to get you involved in the school, and whatever it is you are interested in, they provide you with as much information as possible. The psychology department is amazing because most of the advisors themselves have Ph.D's in psychology, so they know exactly what you need to do to get wherever you would like your degree to take you.

You would definitely not regret choosing the University of La Verne for your school of choice. You will feel taken care of and at home for the amount of time you are pursuing your higher education!
