La Verne sororities defy national statistics

Mariela Patron Copy Chief It’s rare for Veronica Orozco not to run into someone she knows when walking to class. Her social life at the University of La Verne is similar to that of an up-and-coming celebrity walking a red carpet during award season; everywhere she goes somebody is up for a conversation.
