4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I've lived in two different guesthouses and both have been awesome, they let me keep my kitty, the landlords/ladies were nice and rent was what you'd expect from the area.

Off-Campus Dining: Go to Papa's if you feel like spending a bit more for deliciousness, Miss Donut for awesome bagel sammies, Warehouse all pizza needs. There is also coffeeberry, a sushi shop, chinese food etc etc.

Administration: Most departments are understanding but ultimately uphold Uni rules whenever necessary.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: They are helpful and even though I've been selected for verification one too many times, I am very thankful for the generous package I've been given.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Lacking variety at Barbs though the food there is tastier. DP food tastes alright, generic stuff.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Living Off-Campus is great choice, if you want to save money from living on-campus. There are different housing options available under a landlord, such student apartments.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off-Campus dining has affordable options, mostly fast food but i won't complain.

5 College Freshman

Administration: I believe the Administration is very strict, and very strict for a reason. Rules and regulations need to put in place, so certain students do not become out of control.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: People at University of La Verne seem to be down to earth, because most understand the struggle to pay for their education. Sometimes, students need a break from their studies to become rejuvenated.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: University of La Verne provides about 75-80% in financial aid. The rest is your own personal savings and Students loans: Direct Subsidized and Direct Unsubsidized.

Campus Food: I recommend eating off campus, in order to save some money for other expenses such as; gas.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: University of La Verne has great options for housing if you are looking to live on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: We could use some more varity

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are many different types of housing and they are all very clean. All the housing is in close proximity to campus.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food isn't gourmet, but it is decent. There are always a few different options to choose from so you have choices besides the main dish. The dining hall is very nice and spacious for the size of the school. There is an outside seating area with heaters and the inside is pretty spread out. There is always a social atmosphere and students workers are constantly cleaning up the dining area and keeping it presentable. If you aren't feeling Davenport, the main dining area, you can use your Leo Dollars at the on campus café, Barbara's Place. This small café offers daily specials as well as a permanent menu and a starbucks menu.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I absolutely love living on campus. Living on campus has given me a different college experience than if I had commuted. I've gained so many relationships with my floor mates and a very strong bond with my roommate. We're like a little family and we've had so many fun experiences on the floor. The R.A's are also super awesome, they comfort you and also create programs for everyone on the floor to join in on. Most of the events on campus start at 10PM so attending these events are easier to do then if a commuter to drive back to school.

Greek Life: From what I have heard most of Greek Life is very friendly towards non-Greeks. I often see them set up little party gatherings around small parts of the university and constantly welcome non-Greeks to join the party. I do however, hear most gossip and drama from the fraternities and sororities, a concept that I would prefer to stay away from.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Though I am not in the athletics program, I hear some opinions from those who are in the program. Students enjoy the availability of the track and occasionally the weight-lift gym to exercise on their own time. However I do not hear significant news about most of our sports teams. People attend for mostly support of their friends and/or family.

Administration: Within the heart of the university resides a police and fire station. I do not hear much news about constant police enforcement in the university because I am assuming the students know better than to perform obvious (if anything) criminal activity for law enforcement to react. Therefore, I consider the university safe with a fair amount of strict enforcement.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I could have given the financial aid a three if they were not willing to discuss financial aid options. However, they certainly did and they were even willing to allow appeals for more financial aid if possible! I would not have received work study if I were not provided the appeal. Though, as a freshman, I wish they provided more financial aid information ahead a little more ahead of time such as explaining to me how to understand my student accounts page. Nonetheless I could not have been more grateful for their service when requested!

Campus Food: My favorite meal to get at Barb's is the grilled cheese sandwiches. The sandwiches, like the rest of the food provided at ULV is practically 4-star restaurant quality. Many items on the menu are very delicious and nutritious.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Wish they were more considerate of students class schedule

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Very diverse campus and community environment

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty great if you're into it. The fraternities and sororities are pretty nice, nothing too crazy, I mean it is La Verne after all. The general vibe for non-greeks is that the Greek population is pretty clique-ish, but not snobby. They are very friendly and welcoming and very- VERY enthusiastic about getting you to join. It's just to each his own, you know? They are very involved on campus and basically run the school. There are no Greek houses, so they meet once a week in designated rooms on campus. They have a lot of events throughout the school year that are pretty fun and open to everyone.

Athletics: We are a division 3 school. Sports are not a huge part of campus life. Our facilities are okay for what they are, and you can find ways to get fit, but honestly everything is sort of just a side thing in that respect. The cardio room is cool but you have to keep track of the hours. They just built an outdoor basketball court so if you're looking for a pick up game there is something there.
