Dorm construction leads city’s growth skyward
Jason D. Cox Staff Writer As the University of La Verne continues to grow and mature, so too does the city of La Verne. However land availability has its limits, and when building outward is no longer possible, there is nowhere to go but up. “We don’t have much land, but we keep growing and need more facility space,” Executive Vice President Phil Hawkey said. ULV’s new residence hall, currently...

Enrollment outpacing dorm capacity
Jason D. Cox Staff Writer Even with the new dorm scheduled to open in Fall 2012, University of La Verne housing could still have a tough time keeping pace with enrollment if enrollment continues to grow as it has for the past few years. The new residence hall, currently under construction on D Street between First and Second streets, is the latest attempt by the University of La Verne administration... 

New academic building in the works

Jason D. Cox Staff Writer Faculty and administrators hope next year to begin construction of a new academic building. “We’re very early on in this process, probably looking at a building in 2012,” Provost Greg Dewey said.

Parking should be a priority

With the construction starting on the University of La Verne’s new dorms, students eagerly await the new housing that will be available to them.

Commercial space is not necessary

A residence hall is a place for students to congregate. With couches, rooms and a place to study, a dorm building should be the last place one would think about shopping. By spring of 2011, the University will start building its new residence hall east of the Campus Center to facilitate the large increase of students to campus and to improve living conditions for those who currently live in older... 

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor, This is in reference to the Campus Times article, “Athletics could lose facilities with new campus construction” (Nov. 12). While this is a good article that addresses a topic of concern to student and student-athletes, it unfortunately appears that this did not include the most current information prior to printing the article, and this has created some factual and philosophical misrepresentations. It...
