I liked the small class sizes as well as the availability and willingness of professors to give you all the support you may need. Professors are very passionate about their work and create a space that is conducive to growth and learning.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I would add that there is a decent portion of the school that are commuters. It may be a little harder to find friends if you are a commuter.



I really enjoyed my experience at the university. I believe it’s because of the friendships I made there and the help I received from the staff because it was a small university. I think something that became a barrier for me was how expensive it was. The price and limited major focuses would be something I would tell prospective students to look at.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The price for the education I feel like didn’t align. Especially because the amount you were paying and the lack of expansion in the university didn’t coincide for me. And there wasn’t a lot of availability for major concentrations.

As a "minority-serving institution," the University of La Verne still has a lot of work to do in terms of protecting its students from incidents. The events on campus are usually very white-centric, and any event that features a community of color's traditions are usually taken place only during the respective's community's history month.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The dining hall is subpar if you have any form of dietary restrictions.

The ability to complete solely online is excellent for adult learners.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The financial aid department is terrible, don't be easily fooled by their college representatives, and the quality of education is not worth the price paying.

It is a very small campus with small class sizes, meaning you get to know your professors and classmates very well. There is also a lot of financial aid available from the institution and private donors. Also, the parking structure has plenty of spaces, and students don't have to pay for their parking permits.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I have noticed that sometimes the general academic advisers are not informed about departmental requirements and policies. Definitely meet with a professor in your major for advising each semester before you register for classes.
