Registration restrictions create setback for upperclassmen

UPDATE (6:45 p.m.): A planned student protest and strong reactions from the student body played a part in the reversal of the restriction on 100 and 200-level courses authorized by Dean of College of Arts and Sciences Lawrence Potter. In response to the growing undergraduate enrollment and fewer available lower division courses, the restriction gave registration priority to first and second-year students.... 

Students stress over new parking situation

Camila Rios Staff Writer With an incoming class of approximately 600 students and new restrictions to on-campus lots, many students are expressing frustration with the University of La Verne’s parking situation. “It’s great that La Verne is expanding because it benefits the school and community,” junior biology major Jessica Serrano said. “The downfall is that as the class sizes are growing,... 

ULV fails to prepare for growth

The first week back to school from an eventful summer break is always one of the hardest things to get through. As we enter the new year at the University of La Verne, the resources needed to accommodate the student body growth were underestimated. The university administration knew how many incoming students were enrolled for the fall semester, yet, it was still underestimated. Many in the University... 

Classrooms planned to ease crunch

In the next six to nine months, the University plans to build two new classrooms, three seminar rooms, 25 new offices and one new lab. “It’s an exciting time for La Verne,” said Clive Houston-Brown, associate... 

7:40 a.m. classes: just suck it up

With the growing student population, it is getting harder for the registrar’s office to schedule classes. So starting in the fall some classes will begin at 7:40 a.m. instead of 8 a.m. While the groans and complaints of the student body are already being heard, it really is not such a bad thing. Students are continuously complaining that they cannot get the classes they need because they fill up... 

Crowding diminishes quality

La Verne has bitten off more than it can chew with students who have transferred to the University from other institutions this semester.

Counseling center hurt by rising enrollment

Brian Velez LV Life Editor Students sometimes need a little help coping. But with the University of La Verne’s enrollment glut, the counseling center is among the over-worked and underfunded, programs – with potentially serious consequences. In previous semesters a student could call or walk in to make an appointment at the counseling center and would be given an appointment on the same day. Now... 

Courses adjust to classroom mixing

Michelle Nuñez Staff Writer Among the changes prompted by the University’s historically high 2,500-student enrollment this semester, students returned to find classes held unusual places – often in classrooms far from departments’ home bases. “Math in Hoover – parking is terrible,” said Daniel Talamentes, sophomore behavioral science major. “Having a parking permit makes no difference.” The...

Housing accommodates freshmen

Mariela Patron Staff Writer The dramatic increase in freshman admissions to the University of La Verne and the opening of the much anticipated Vista La Verne dorm are among the major changes at the University this fall. More than 630 freshmen are enrolled as of the start of the fall semester, compared with 524 last year. This increase has caused staff to focus on the specific needs of freshmen along...
