College is certainly not for everyone.Psychology
College is certainly not for everyone. There are many different paths to happiness and success. However, for me, my college education (both undergrad and grad) has helped reinforce and shape who I am as a person. I value the lifelong friendships I made, the cherished memories, the knowledge/experience learned, and the solid preparation for my career. I wouldn't have been able to advance to the level I?m at without an advanced degree. Experience is crtiical too, but without the degree, I?d have hit a glass ceiling much sooner. The degrees are a basic requirement for the field I am in. If you do go to college, have fun, but also be sure to apply yourself. This decision will impact the rest of your life. Make the best of your time and this investment and it will pay off down the road.

I graduated back in 1992 after transferring from Cal State Fullerton. I did enjoy CSUF but I choose to finish at La Verne for the small class size and one on one interaction. I found it to be an outstanding choice and one that I would have done all these years later.I am pleased to see that ULV is improving in the various scholastic rating systems and I expect big things. I did recently (two years ago) receive my MBA from Arizona State University and I believe that my experience at La Verne helped in my success there.

I'm an undergraduate at the University of LaBrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I'm an undergraduate at the University of La Verne and let me just start by saying if you are looking for a school that is spirited, is fun, has intelligent people, is a party school, has great sports, and is challenging, La Verne is NOT for you. The reason I came to La Verne was because of small class sizes, for their apparently excellent business major, and because I had a good amount of scholarships. Unfortunately, this school is so unenjoyable all of that stuff does not matter to me anymore. The town of La Verne is so boring, there is nothing to do. And when I mean nothing I mean NOTHING. Everything is closed by 8 and there are no parties at all. On the weekends the school is dead quiet and most students go home. U of La Verne fails at entertaining students with activities on the weekends. Hell, they don't even have a gym open! or volleyball courts or basketball courts! I've never played so many video games and watched so much cheap cable in my life. No one goes to the sporting events(probably because our sports are awful, football has one four games over the past 4 years). This campus is small and uninteresting with a small student body consisting of mostly commuters and unclassy ugly people. Brandt and Stu Han Dorms are disgusting and uncleaned, get in Oaks if you come here its a little better. Now classes here are as easy as they come. Most people here aren't smart enough to succeed so they really dumb it down for them. It's not challenging at all. The one plus is that the teacher will help you and that it's easy to get good grades. So when I get the hell out of here I'll be able to transfer to somewhere somewhat prestigious and fun. And by the way the forbes, us news rankings are BS. This school does not deserve to be that high. It's an all around horrible university.
