Quake preparedness critical to LV

Kristine Delgadillo Staff Writer The University of La Verne has taken extra precautions toward earthquake preparedness in light of recent earthquakes in the Los Angeles County to prepare students and faculty in case of emergency. A campus-wide earthquake drill took place April 15 in every dorm at ULV. Drills were led by the resident advisers and each was trained on what to do in an event of an earthquake. “I... 

Residents battle for victory

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. The trophy was ultimately awarded to Vista La Verne when competition wrapped up Thursday night. The idea originated during the RHA summer retreat. Members were looking for a program to involve all the residence... 

First Person Experience: Stranger finds easy access to dorms

Brian Velez LV Life Editor During a one-month period I attempted to enter all dorm buildings on the University of La Verne campus. I was not able to enter the Oaks residence hall, yet entered all other dorms at least five times each on separate occasions. Doors were held open for me and I passed open rooms with valuables unattended. I scared people, made others laugh when I told them what I was doing,... 

Housing should be need based

Housing should be need based
Editorial cartoon by Anthony Juarez With tuition rising and the state slowly pulling Cal Grants, it is no wonder that many students are scraping to find places to live while they further their education. Several instances of students crashing in friend’s dorms or using their cars as a home away from home have been heard of on the University of La Verne’s campus. Many of these instances can be blamed...

Kevin Greene, junior theater arts major and resident assistant for the F top building, said that he grabbed the health backpack and evacuated his residents in accordance to procedure. “I saw a lot of smoke coming from the F middle dorm so I exited my residence and now... 

Students take their safety for granted

This semester the University of La Verne’s residence halls have experienced a series of attempted robberies, harassment and unwanted visitors, that has shaken many of the students who live on campus. Students generally believe that since the University is in the city of La Verne, a city known to be safe, and quiet that they do not have to worry as much about leaving their doors open, walking alone... 

New housing planned

Grady Lee Thomas Staff Writer The influx of new students, and expectations that this year’s enrollment increase will hold steady has created the need for additional on-campus housing. The Oaks, Stu-Han and Brandt residence halls combined house 464 students and are currently 20 percent over their combined occupancy limit. “Stu-Han and Brandt have served ULV well, but they’re quickly approaching... 

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... 

Dorm life needs some attention

The University of La Verne is a private school, and by default charges an arm and a leg, and another arm at that, for tuition, room and board. This is understandable, for the most part. ULV provides intimate class sizes and great accessibility to teachers and faculty. This accounts for the high academic tuition, but not the room and board. Living at ULV costs more than $3,000 a semester, with food....
