I went to ULV and double majored inQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I went to ULV and double majored in Broadcasting (television emphasis), and Business Administration. Both programs were well defined and the path clearly layed out. I made many important professional and lifelong educational contacts. I always found that the faculty would bend over backward to help and assist in any way possible. The goal around learning always centered around understanding of concepts and "big picture" views. The school requires you to take "Core" classes, which help develop your world view. At first I thought this was stupid, but in retrospect appreciate that I was exposed to education and activities that I otherwise would not through any other institution. I worked full-time while attending so cannot rate social life accurately (I had none at the time). The school is in beautiful La Verne with a "small town" setting... 45 minutes from mountains, beach or downtown LA. This is not a party school. Since the campus is over 100 years old, you really have to appreciate old architecture and old fixtures, doors, bathrooms etc... visit Founders Hall to get an example. However, I wouldn't have traded it for even the most modern facility... it felt historic and important learning there. I saw 5 negative comments vs 100 positive on this site. Although I can't defend or deny those experiences all I can tell you is that the school is private and more expensive than others. In my opinion it is worth every penny. Your ability to pay your loan back in this economy depends solely on your ability to be competitive and flexible. Also if you plan on being a high school teacher, you will make (probably) the same amount whether you went to La Verne, Cal State or Harvard. You are paying for the opportunity and experience, 12:1 faculty to student ratio, very high faculty accessibility. Average class size was about 15, typically no more than about 20 students per class... some classes as low as 4-5 students. There is a high degree of accountability, because you are not 1 student in a sea of people your actions and work is very visible to faculty. I have found that my degree is highly respected among the local (Southern California)business community and has opened the door to many great opportunities.
