During a one-month period I attempted to enter all dorm buildings on the University of La Verne campus.
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.
At roughly 1 p.m., Thursday, a fire alarm went off in the F middle building of the Oaks residence hall.
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.
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.
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.
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.
