The Magazine of the University of La Verne

Online Edition

Editor's Note

You know, when it comes to finding out what’s happening around town, there’s nothing quite like leaning one elbow on the fence and shooting the breeze with your next-door neighbor.

It’s just hard to beat getting the latest news from a trusted friend.

Many of us have grown up during a time when news was more of a monologue. Now, thanks to the interactive communication made available by advancing technology, there’s been a real shift toward dialogue.

This new, online version of our university magazine, Voice, is a good example of that. The past few years, we’ve sent out the Voice in an attractive, printed magazine style with the purpose of showcasing the excellence of the University of La Verne. Magazines are stylish, luxuriant, and rich with color and texture. They’re designed not only to be read, but also to be absorbed. They’re perfect when you’re ready to relax, kick off your shoes and curl up on the sofa or lounge by the pool.

But what an online magazine gives up in style points, it more than makes up for with other goodies. Timeliness. Dynamism. Interactivity. Voice Online can and will be updated constantly with current information about people and events that you as a friend of La Verne will find of interest. Some of that information you won’t even need to read. Just click on a video link and you can sit back, watch and listen to a video message from University President Steve Morgan. Click on another and there are actual La Verne students sharing their views on important topics.

Then it’s your turn to talk. Just click on one of the interactive links like “Your Voice,” “Letter to the Editor,” or “Leo Lines” and you can give us the news about you and your family. Send us your photos. Send us video files. We love to hear from all our alumni and friends, and this is a great way to create a dialogue, neighbor to neighbor, kind of like Facebook and some other forms of social media that are popping up. We’ve even got a story here, in Voice Online, about Facebook and the way it’s helping La Verne alumni keep in touch every day. Another great example of the way La Verne folks are breaking down mass communication to a one-to-one level.

But then, that’s what La Verne College/University of La Verne has been all about through the years, and that’s why we think you’re going to like the new online version of the Voice. So, look around, enjoy reading about what’s happening today at La Verne, send us your thoughts and ideas, and then keep checking back with us.

We’ll meet you at the fence.
