ULV needs to grow smarter

As progress on the new dorms continues and the successful opening of the long-awaited parking lot earlier this week, it looks as if the University of La Verne is growing at a steady pace. However, the appearance of growth through construction is not the only thing we have to be concerned with. Even though admissions enrolled the same number of students this year as last, we still have an over-crowded...

A wish list for our new president

As the year comes to a close, we are saying goodbye to President Steve Morgan, who has been leading the University of La Verne for the last 26 years. On July 1, President-Select Devorah Lieberman will take over and begin her presidency. We at the Campus Times have a few things to ask Lieberman to put on her to-do list once she begins to fulfill her own priority list as president. First we would like... 

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.

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...
