Members of the Residence Hall Association this week began the Battle of the Halls, for which students living in each of the four dorms on campus compete with one another in sports and games.
During a one-month period I attempted to enter all dorm buildings on the University of La Verne campus.
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.
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.
For many students at the University of La Verne, winter break is essentially a vacation from school. Moving home for two months allows students to visit with family, see old friends and relax after a hard semester filled with research projects, group assignments and classes that never seem to let up.
At roughly 1 p.m., Thursday, a fire alarm went off in the F middle building of the Oaks residence hall.
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.
With his experience in housing at Cal Poly Pomona, Cal State Northridge and Cal State San Bernardino, Juan Regalado has had no problem stepping in as housing director to deal with the issues that have come his way.
Students from the Sheraton, Brandt, the Oaks and Stu-Han dorms will engage in a Battle of the Halls all year for the most points to win a dinner from the housing office.
