Admins must notify students, too
editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff With the end of the semester approaching and registration taking place, chaos is commonplace.

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.... 

Tech not expected to slow registration

A number of recent technology glitches have students worried about registering for January and spring classes, with registration beginning Monday morning. A major concern for students is the University’s Wi-Fi and the possibility that it might not be able to handle the overload of students trying to claim classes. “When not that many people are using [the Wi-Fi] it runs OK at best,” said Edwin...

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... 

Freshmen faced frustration at registration

Kat Simonelli Staff Writer Registration for the spring semester began on Nov. 27, 2012, and caused a lot of stress for some La Verne students according to an informal poll. Due to the Freshman La Verne Experience program, freshmen said they were a little lost when it came to registering for classes this semester because they previously had an adviser do it for them. “I think it really sucks that... 

Rethinking priority registration

With registration for the next academic semester coming to a close, students have worked on organizing their necessary courses into a tight time schedule. Seniors have the first day to register and the other classes follow; however, ASULV and CAB students have the luxury of priority registration where they can sign up for classes on the first day. ASULV and CAB students are not the only ones to receive... 

Some advice on advising

Academic advising began last month and students have recently registered for the fall semester. As many students and faculty would testify, there are numerous problems with the way the academic advising and registration at the University are run.
