We are bursting at the seams

During this school year we have watched our class sizes increase, our financial aid decrease, our parking spots fill up and ours sports leave campus one-by-one. We have protested enrollment increases, and yet next fall our enrollment will be at an all-time high. What is more troublesome is that despite the increases in enrollment, little has been to done to create new classes to accommodate the influx... 

University budget is chaotic

In the fall of 2010, the University of La Verne welcomed approximately 543 freshmen and 228 transfer students, bringing the total undergraduate enrollment to 1,894 students. The projected enrollment for fall 2011 boasts similar numbers and a total undergraduate enrollment of 2,044 students. Theoretically this influx means that the University, whose budget is strongly dependent on tuition, has much... 

Feeling the squeeze

University of La Verne students returning for the spring semester have been met with more than 120 fewer parking stalls and overfilled classes. The combination of new dorm construction removing parking lots and a sharp increase in spring 2011 new enrollments has compounded our growing pains, straining advisers and leaving some newbies feeling lost. This spring ULV opened its doors to 106 new students,... 

Enrollment breaks university record

Blake Humphrey Staff Writer Although the tour guides at the University of La Verne have stayed true to the techniques they have used during previous orientations, La Verne started the spring semester with record-breaking enrollment. “It is important as tour guides to make a positive first impression on the prospective students,” junior accounting major Nichole Wood said. “We are usually the... 

Admissions may raise standards with minimum SAT requirement

Currently the University of La Verne has no minimum SAT requirement for student admittance. However, on Oct. 5 the College of Arts and Sciences overwhelmingly approved a motion “to encourage... 

Dorms are full to overflowing

A temporary fix includes tripling up in some rooms. Brittany Lawrence Staff Writer This fall’s record-setting enrollment should benefit the University of La Verne’s prestige and financial well being. But the significant number of new undergraduate students has put a squeeze on resources such as housing. More than 770 new undergraduate freshmen, transfer and international students were counted... 

Give parking gripes a brake

With the sudden increase in enrollment at the University of La Verne, a big concern among the student body has become parking, or the lack of parking. Students have complained that the parking situation needs to be fixed because they have spent so much time looking for parking that they have been late to class on several occasions. If the students would take the time to look for parking somewhere besides... 

Parking tough but possible

Jason D. Cox Staff Writer Record enrollment of new traditional-aged undergraduate students at the University this semester has caused some parking issues, but not the crunch anticipated by administrators. As of the third week of classes, student enrollment has exceeded 1,800, a more than 300-student increase over last year. The registrar’s office has issued hundreds of parking passes. Anticipating... 

Brace for tighter space

With the school year wrapping up for the 2009-2010 academic year, it would be appropriate to commend the University of La Verne for its accomplishments, namely the opening of the Campus Center and its major jump in freshmen enrollment. But the latter is also generating a new cause for concern once September comes around. One of the main concerns is whether the University will be able to comfortably... 

Addressing enrollment issues

Although the University of La Verne is great in many ways – and we love our small classes and individual attention from professors – it is no secret that we have an enrollment problem. And our decreasing enrollment is contributing to the University’s financial problems. As currently-enrolled students, we know what attracted us to ULV and we think we have a good idea about what could attract...
