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

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.

3 College Junior

Administration: The transportation is okay. There is a shuttle bus that runs often, but only one drop-off/pick-up point, and its a bit of a hassle to use sometimes.

Campus Security is annoying. They are sometimes very helpful, but often it seems like they have nothing better to do except come up with excuses to charge you with something. One time my friends and I were walking through a building on campus, and three guards showed up and interrogated us on what we were doing there. It is a public building that all students have access to, so you can imagine our annoyance at being interrogated when we obviously had a right to be there. They ticket the cars in the parking lot like crazy, so that also is annoying. I figure every time they ticket a car its like a gold star for them or something, like it makes their day. It's basically the only thing they do well.

Scholarships: This section confused me, am I talking about financial aid or parking?

Financial aid is okay, it seems the departments never communicate with each other though, which is a complete headache when trying to get something done. Nobody knows anything and its all messed up.

PARKING SUCKS.

literally. no. parking. ever. EVER. EVERRR. and the parking enforcement guys ticket the hell out of everyone. Like if you leave your car in a 90min spot for 91 minutes, whoop, theres another $50 parking ticket. It's awful. Always late to class, always broke because of parking tickets, its not worth it.

Party Scene: La Verne is definitely not known for being a party school. For the most part, it seems to be a bunch of hipsters sitting around drinking coffee, while the Greeks run around promoting things for the clubs at the school.

If you're looking for parties, you will definitely find them. The fraternities and sororities host parties throughout the semester, which are usually pretty fun to go to, they just cost like $10 to get in, which is kind of a bummer. I definitely recommend going to them at least once though, I mean, it's almost like a college initiation to participate in a Toga Party.

The sports teams regularly host parties every weekend. Whether its the basketball house, the football house, the water polo house, or the soccer house, there is always something going on. The trick is knowing the right people so you can go. If you're not afraid to ask around, you will certainly find the party you're looking for.

Campus Food: So I'm going to be straight here.

Davenport sucks.

Don't get me wrong, first week of the year they bring out the best stuff possible to impress the incoming freshman. All the food tastes wonderful and you sit there thinking "wow, how did I get so lucky?"

However, after the charm of "Welcome Week" wears off, DP never ceases in returning to its salty, cardboard origins. Everything they serve is almost always loaded with salt, and can leave you feeling sick for hours afterward. If you're going to eat there, its best to stick to the Grill, where they make the food right in front of you, or the salad/soup bar (but even then, be wary of the soup).

Barbara's Place (Or barbs, as everyone calls it) is okay every once in a while. They serve mainly Mexican food items and Starbucks coffee. If you're looking to grab a quick snack or a coffee, this place isn't too bad, but I dont recommend eating here everyday. The food has often been quite greasy in the past, and again, leaving people sick for hours afterward. The "Starbucks" on campus serves coffee that pales in comparison to the real thing, but again, if you're looking for convenience and quickness, this isn't a bad place to go. Their Daily Specials are probably the best thing about the place. They always seem to be the tastiest and healthiest items on the menu, and they usually come with sides and a drink.

Campus Housing: I have been a commuter for the past three years of my college career. Although I may not have lived on campus a full year myself, I have stayed overnight many times in my friends dorms, as well as conducted a study on the housing application process, space available, and pricing over the past few years.

Overall, the best dorms on campus would probably be the Oaks or Vista La Verne. Oaks is great if you are a freshman. It has air conditioning (literally a godsend- it gets way too hot in fall and spring) and allows you to make great friendships since you are sharing a space with 15 other people. It has a kind of family feel to it, and is a great way to start out your college experience. Vista would be the next best choice, since it is the newest addition to the dorms on campus and comes equipped with air conditioning (again, a must) and private bathrooms for you (if you have a single) and your roommate (if you have a double). Its very comfortable and has a hotel-like feel to it. The only drawback is the elevator breaks a lot and it can sometimes get a little lonely.

Pricing can be a little iffy, if you want the cheapest you're going to have to go with Brandt hall, but I wouldn't recommend it since it always smells like sweat and is consistently hot in there. If you were going to go with a cheaper dorm, I would pick StuHan, since it is one of the more social dorms,and has some of the roomiest dorms on campus. Vista is expensive, but you get the convenience of your own bathroom. Oaks is probably the best bang for your buck, so I would pick that if I had a choice.
